WIZO South Africa has joined forces with Wheelchairs of Hope, a nongovernmental organisation based in Israel, which developes, designs, manufactures and provides these chairs, to bring 150 child-size wheelchairs to South Africa for children in need of help with mobility.

The two organisations presented one of the wheelchairs to Jack (not his real name), a child at El Roi with special needs on 4 July.

El Roi manager Nicole Gillette says: “I fought hard for Jack to stay with us because I believe G-d has a family for him.” Prior to receiving the wheelchair, Jack who is nearly five years old and cannot walk due to neurological deformities since birth, had to be carried by staff or pushed in a stroller.
