Birte was hit by a tram and nearly died.
When she finally regained consciousness, it was clear her life would never be the same. She had to learn how to eat, talk and walk.
That’s when her fiancé discovered our equipment library and the beach wheelchair.
Our special beach wheelchair has wide wheels and extra buoyancy, so she can go right into the water. Birte can now enjoy the great outdoors…
Sadly, we only have one beach wheelchair. They cost thousands of dollars and are beyond the reach of most families.
You can give those who can’t afford it, the equipment they need to have sport, recreation and fun in their lives… something we all take for granted.
Before winter hits, please give, so others like Birte can have their freedom..
