Situation

People with disabilities, and particularly those with mobility issues in Tanzania are really at the bottom of the heap. Most disabled people live in poverty, with poor health and little opportunity to get an education. Life is hard. There are around 10,000 people in Tabora Region who need a wheelchair or mobility device. Most have no access to health care or support for their disabilities.

Solution

Through provision of a wheelchair, physiotherapy and education, Just Wheels aims to transform the lives of disabled people in Tabora. This campaign will raise money to pay for wheelchairs to be made locally, to World Health Organisation standards, and then provided to people who really need them. They will also receive physiotherapy and access to an education fund and educational support.
