Delivery of Wheelchairs 

 

This is one of the most important projects of our club. Over the past 5 years, 9 full container loads of wheelchairs, sponsored by different U.S. Rotary Clubs and the Wheelchair Foundation, have been distributed to Guatemalans in need who would not have been able to afford their purchase, benefiting approx. 2600 individuals and their families.
Also other groups, such as the New York Yankees baseball team and employees of American Airlines have donated wheelchairs and visited Guatemala in order to help with the corresponding distribution, as did many of the foreign Rotarians whose clubs sponsored the chairs.
