Free Wheelchair Mission is an international non-profit organization dedicated to providing wheelchairs for the impoverished disabled in developing nations.
I met Stefan Bucher at Design Indaba last week. He was there speaking about his Daily Monsters. He introduced me to this organization and we think it’s ingenious. We’re big fans of using off the shelf parts to solve the simple problems first. Health doesn’t need to be as complex as it is. It’s mostly about unique thinking for simple solutions that solve 90% of problems for 90% of people.
Each wheelchair costs $59.20! Donate a wheelchair here.
