Wheelchairs For Kids

Wheelchairs for kids - Tsunami Appeal

The Wheelchairs for Kids - Tsunami Appeal was a seperately organised appeal and a worthy cause, providing those children suffering with disability and injury as a direct result of this disaster with an effective means by which to be able to move around freely and to maintain their independence without having to be restricted to bed.

These wheelchairs helped to contribute to their protection from infection by enabling them to stay off the ground and to maintain some form of mobility in the conditions in which they were faced with and we were proud to be actively supporting this disaster relieve program for these children.

The Wheelchairs for Kids Inc is a charity based in Western Australia that was set up by the Rotary Club of Scarborough and The Christian Brothers that manufacturer and donate wheelchairs around the world to those in need.

The Appeal culminated in a Gala Banquet Auction at Rendezvous Observation City on Saturday April 16th 2005. Our target was to raise at least $250,000 to donate to the project to provide wheelchairs for those affected by the tsunami on December 26th 2004 during the appeal.

The Wheelchairs for Kids Inc Project prides itself on being able to say that no money donated specifically for wheelchair production in used in administration; currently the Rotary Club Scarborough and The Christian Brothers underwrite this with the support of sponsorship partners to this appeal.

The workshop is run by over 60 volunteers who donate their time and skill to the project, with the workshop manager being Br.Olly Pickett, a Western Australian Volunteer of the Year and it's patron Dr.Fiona Wood who was a Western Australian of the Year and is well is known for her work in burn and skin cell development.
