American Wheelchair Mission

As reported earlier at the July meeting, the Iowa Knights have purchased a sea container of 110 wheelchairs which have been ordered, and should be delivered to Haiti sometime in September or October. Dan Moberg of the Wheelchair  Mission told me that after the shipment arrives in Port Au Prince, it typically can take up to 5 months for the chairs to be cleared for distribution. We partnered with the Puerto Rico Knights this time and I believe the total number of chairs will be 280 along with some walkers, canes and crutches. . At this time the balance in our state wheelchair fund stands at $1232.00 so we are on our way to another shipment. Keep those fundraisers going so we can help more individuals who are in need of mobility.
