LDS Charities Signature Programs - Wheelchair

Wheelchairs One of Eight Signature Programs for LDS Charities

Background

OUR MISSION

Improve mobility, health, and the educational and economic opportunities for people with physical disabilities.

OUR APPROACH

Working with local organizations, we improve the services for the physically disabled and provide manual wheelchairs or walking aids that are appropriate to individual needs and circumstances.

Volunteer trainers help local organizations to assess individual needs, select and fit appropriate wheelchairs, train individuals and caregivers, provide support for repair and maintenance, and implement World Health Organization guidelines.

Where it's feasible, LDS Charities seeks to support local production of wheelchairs.
