For more than 20 years, Wheels for the World has supplied over 20,000 wheelchairs to the disabled in 23 countries!! In developing countries like Ghana or Honduras, the cost of a wheelchair is equal to a year’s salary! The wheelchairs collected right here in Connecticut will be refurbished & then shipped overseas, where they will be distributed by Joni and Friends Wheels for the World teams to children and adults with disabilities.
