Four health care kits were successfully delivered to just as many people with mobility disabilities from Bucharest and the Ilfov county with the help of our friends from Neobility who ensured the packages were delivered. The Neo.Delivery service was launched by the start-up Neobility in order to help local businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In total, 27 wheelchair users from all over the country, have received health care kits, prepared by the Motivation Romania Foundation. The funds to acquire these products come from our SMS fundraising camping, through the money donated by texting ACTIV to 8844. The sets contain reusable face masks, hand disinfectant, disinfectant wet wipes, skin care creams, liquid soap and gloves. These are all useful to disabled people affected by the pandemic, so they can protect their health and maintain an active lifestyle.
The SMS fundraiser campaign for texting ACTIV to 8844 was launched by the Motivation Romania Foundation in September 2019 in order to give back movement to sufferers of mobility disabilities , through fitted wheelchairs. During May – October 2020, in the context of the pandemic, the monthly 2 euros per text message are redirected towards acquiring and delivering health care products towards wheelchair users identified by the regional Motivation teams.
