Solidary Foundation to promote the joy of giving, and to deliver a wheelchair to every man, woman, and child who needs one, bringing new independence to those people deprived of mobility.
By giving wheelchair to individuals in need Solidary Foundation gives freedom, self-reliance, mobility and hope.
Mobility: The Most Basic Human Right.
The ability to move ourselves from one place to another is perhaps the most basic human right. For most of us, it is a given. When we need to go across a street or across a room, our brain simply tells our legs to go.
For others, mobility is more difficult. Disabled by illness or injury, many people need a wheelchair to move themselves where they want to go. But for¬† people around the world, even this form of mobility is out of reach. The wheelchairs they need aren't available, sentencing them to a prison of immobility in which they must crawl or be carried.
Our Gift is Independence:
With your help, Solidary Foundation is offering mobility and independence by providing wheelchairs to those in need. Enabling people to move upright and with dignity is a gift we can deliver.
We invite you to join us, and help bring a new life to children and adults without hope around the world.
