Our partner IKEA Romania come to support people with disabilities, beneficiaries of Motivation’s programs and our regional teams, with a donation of 15,000 masks and 3,900 disposable shoe covers – for protection against coronavirus.
With their help, 268 people will protect their health. The products will be distributed to young people with disabilities and care staff from IMPACT program, colleagues from Motivation regional teams and wheelchair users who receive mobility equipment as a donation, through the Wheelchair Fund, starting September.
During the pandemic, people with disabilities experience difficulties in supplying with health protection products, due to reasons such as lack of accessibility, contact disruption with support people, increased risk of exposure to coronavirus infection through the use of assistive equipment, or lack of financial resources. Between May and October 2020, Motivation also supports wheelchair users by redirecting SMS donations with the text ACTIV to short number 8844 and donating sets with health care products. 55 sets were delivered in June and August to children and adults with spinal cord injuries or similar functional disabilities.
Support Motivation Foundation’s programs dedicated to people with disabilities through a donation in money or products, so that together we can #ChangeLife for the better! https://motivation.ro/en/support-motivation/
