OUR GOAL Our ultimate goal is to donate 10,000 wheelchairs to the children with Cerebral Palsy in Sri Lanka. To date, funds for 2200 wheelchairs have been raised and 1798 wheelchairs have been distributed across Sri Lanka. CEREBRALPALSY THE PROJECT movement and muscle coordination, thus wheelchairs remain an important mode of movement for the affected individuals, providing much needed freedom. Children affected by Cerebral Palsy usually have limited mobility or are completely bed ridden which often leads to various health complications including muscle contractures. Children who do not have wheelchairs find it diffcult to live a fulfilling life as they cannot even leave their homes, so they struggle to make friends and find it diffcult to fit into a community. This project was initiated to enable the children with Cerebral Palsy to get out of their house bound situation and to encourage their maximal participation in the society. THE PROJECT SO FAR...
