The Wheelie Good Idea uses old and unwanted independent living aids and mobility equipment which we collect, refurbish and export to Africa.
Our first shipping container is heading off to Durban, South Africa any day now where Container Missionaries will distribute to nine separate organisations.
This connection was made with the support of Cassy Healey, an old friend of Clynfyw who works with the Unlimited Child, supporting 26,000 children. (theunlimitedchild.co.za)
Much of the equipment comes from personal donations—equipment that is no longer needed. We are also most grateful to Patterson’s Medical Supplies and Pembrokeshire County Council’s Shapes Stores for their continuing support.
We are keen to work with other like minded organisations on this project. We are taking with Disability in Wales and Africa, ResponsAble Assistance, Value Independence and other groups about how this project can grow to achieve its full potential.
We are grateful to Dylan Thomas Crane Hire, Boncath for help with moving the container on and off the articulated lorry and many others too.
The project is currently funded by sales of our apple juice and mugs, fundrasing events, small grants and kind donations from supporters. We are most grateful for everyones help in raising funds as well fixing kit and loading the container. It continues to be a magnificient team effort.
Our new flyers and banner were funded by Collaborative Communities, for which we are also most grateful.
