Rotary Donates To Disable

Scores of disabled people throughout the country now have a chance to own a brand new wheelchair.

Keeping with its yearlong theme “Engage Rotary, Change Lives,” the Rotary Club of East Nassau yesterday donated 100 wheelchairs to The Bahamas Association for the Physically Disabled.

Rotary President Philip Cummings said the organisation has a longstanding relationship with the BAPD.

“We want the BAPD to continue the fantastic work they have been doing with the physically disabled in The Bahamas,” he said.

“We try to help out where we can with cash donations and the maintenance of the buildings.”

The donation no doubt means a lot to those who cannot afford wheelchairs and therefore stuck inside their homes.

“Some of them who are bedridden cannot come out, simply because they do not have wheelchairs, but now they can go out and participate in activities with their families,” says BAPD Administrator, Amber Moss.

“All of the recipients are properly assessed and if not able to receive wheelchairs for any reason, are then wait listed. They are overall very happy and we two are grateful for all that the Rotary Club has done and continues to do.”

The Rotary Club have for years assisted the physically disabled in the country.
