Humanitarian: Wheelchair Program

A company in the United States called Free Wheelchair Mission will provide 550 wheelchair upon approval of our application. LEM will then be able to provide vocational training for local people to build completed wheelchairs for distribution to those in need due to congenital or war-related disability. Due to the expense of shipping complete wheelchairs, it is more economical to ship only the wheels—or chassis—of the chair and then build a completed chair locally. LEM’s Vocational Institute will teach students how to coordinate the various components from suppliers, build a final product and develop a distribution network.
