Wheelchair Distribution

Be it a broken leg, paralysis, amputation or even a birth defect, Gift of the Givers donates wheelchairs on an ad-hoc basis to individuals, hospitals and schools, on request. One's quality of life is instantly improved when they're able to move around freely and the load on caregivers is lessened substantially.
