Wheelchair donaten and Reducing CO²-Emissions

A project from Konvoi der Hoffnung e. V.
in Karlsruhe, Germany

Repairing and checking used wheelchairs, shipping for needy disabled people who otherwise cannot get any aids. That helps the disabled and that helps the climate by reusing existing things and avoiding waste.

About this project

How does it work? Quite simply: the repair shop of Konvoi der Hoffnung in Karlsruhe, Nördl. Uferstr. 4, maintains and repairs donated, used wheelchairs. This saves raw materials, avoids CO² emissions in new production, and reduces waste.
 
The wheelchairs are exported to so-called "poor countries" where disabled people cannot afford a wheelchair and it is not adequately financed by insurance either.

The next truck is planned to Ukraine!
 
That sounds good, but in practice it only works with your donation. Because our two workers need a wage, spare parts and workshop costs have to be paid. Then there is the transport, which unfortunately is not free either.
 
No matter how much you contribute, it is an investment in the future in several respects: disabled children get a better quality of life and maybe work in the future, we all benefit from a reduction in CO² emissions, every kilo less counts!
