Wheelchairs 4 Kids is dedicated to improving the lives of children with physical disabilities by providing wheelchairs, home and vehicle modifications as well as other assistive devices at no charge to the families.
Many children in the United States faced with living with physical disabilities are in wheelchairs that are too small, in disrepair, or do not fit the needs of the child. Not only is it unsafe for a child to be in a chair that is inadequate for their needs, but it can impact their health in numerous ways including scoliosis, respiratory problems and pressure sores. Additionally, families are faced with trying to care for their special needs children in homes that have not been modified to meet their specific circumstances. Children outgrow their wheelchairs before government or insurance programs will allow for a replacement.Your sponsorship can help Wheelchairs 4 Kids continue to help these children.
