In a joint project with other Rotary Clubs from Richmond and Vancouver, a total of 276 wheelchairs were donated and then shipped in a container to South Africa. The Rotary Club of Richmond contributed 53 wheelchairs to this project. Two thirds of these wheelchairs are for adults and the remainder for children. This measure of mobility allows adults to find work, raise their children and do family chores. Children who were previously unable to attend school can now do so.
