Each year, hundreds of children and adults lose their ability to walk, through car and swimming accidents, falling from heights or due to various health issues, and need a wheelchair to be able to move.
Through the Wheelchair Fund, more than 1,000 children and adults with mobility disabilities regain their independence each year. Motivation brings the mobility equipment to Romania, reconditions it and donates it to someone who needs it, and provides independent living training.
Such an equipment can cost over 10,000 lei (or 2,000 EUR). This sum that can be difficult to cover for a disabled person in Romania, and public health services fail to support people with disabilities in their effort to learn to be independent again, in a wheelchair.
MAKE MY DREAM COME TRUE!
You are part of the `village` taking care of the 25 youth with medium and severe disabilities who came into the Motivation family in 2003.
They live in three Motivation family-like homes and have 36 people dedicated to their care on a daily basis, in the family-homes and at the day center.
We organize daily activities to help them discover and improve their social abilities, and to learn the skills they need for a semi-independent life.
Together, we work in the occupational therapy workshop, the physical therapy room and the multisensory stimulation room, learn the colors, play together and engage in sports.
Your donation can give wheelchairs to people with disabilities, increased mobility and independent living through training sessions with Motivation`s independent living trainers, or happy days in the Motivation family for the 25 young adults from our homes. All these are only possible with your support, alongside other donors, sponsors and #TeamMotivation fundraiser-athletes.
Donate to change lives, year after year.
