The child-size chairs will give those patients who cannot walk dignity, control, and self-reliance.

Manufactured by Israeli non-profit organisation and humanitarian mission, Wheelchairs of Hope, these lightweight, robust chairs are designed by specialist Israeli doctors and engineers from ALYN Hospital, Israel’s leading paediatric and adolescent rehabilitation centre, specifically to help disabled children in developing countries.

Janene Currie, the chairperson of BZA (Bnoth Zion Association) WIZO Cape Town said, “The donation of these wheelchairs from Israel offers these young children the life-changing gift of mobility and self-reliance. They will also be a great help to staff and nurses who care for these precious youngsters. They are bright and colourful, specifically designed in the style of a high-chair for kids, and not just a miniaturised adult wheelchair.”
