16 May 2013 – If you have redundant mobility aids lurking in cupboards, loft or garage you can make a huge difference to disabled people in Uganda.
The Uganda Polio Project is a UK-Uganda partnership working towards sustainable long-term improvement in the lives of Ugandan people with disabilities. Volunteers will be at the 30th anniversary Mobility Roadshow on all three days – 27, 28 and 29 June – at the Telford International Centre hoping to receive donations of walking sticks, wheelchairs, aids to daily living, callipers and shoes, also machinery, tools and materials so that orthoses can be adapted to individual needs.
All treatment delivered by the Uganda Polio Project is free of charge and there is active transfer of medical knowledge between UK and Ugandan medics.
Please do help if you can by bringing any equipment to the Mobility Roadshow where a collection point will be in the car park.
You’ll then be able to catch up with and try out all the latest innovations in adapted motoring and mobility equipment, gadgets and gizmos to help you make the most of an independent lifestyle. This free annual event is popular with thousands of disabled and older people, their families and carers who will be travelling to Telford from all corners of the UK, Europe and beyond.
