 Rotary and the Wheelchair Foundation UK

Providing Mobility, Independence, Freedom and Hope.

Chosen as a preferred charity in 2006 by Rotarians all over Great Britain and Ireland and then being regularly recognised in Rotary’s 'Opportunities to Serve' projects has ensured that a sustainable delivery of all terrain brand new wheelchairs are regularly delivered to the needy in the developing countries.

From the humble beginning in District 1040, Yorkshire with the goal to send one 40 foot container of 280 wheelchairs to Lesotho all 29 districts have been supportive in the sending, to date in excess of 33,000 wheelchairs to 30 countries.

The Rotary Foundation

Over the past 2 years we have been able to support the writing of 3 Global Grants and many District Grants that has resulted in Clubs/Districts gaining funding from The Rotary Foundation. Since 2004 the Founadtion has donated in excess of US$900,000.
