The UNL Rotaract Club held a fundraiser starting last November top provide wheelchairs for polio survivors in the Ivory Coast. A member of UNL Rotaract - Koko - is from the Ivory Coast and a polio survivor. He tells the story of how getting a wheelchair changed his life. Read the story - click here.
 
They recently learned of an opportunity to get wheelchairs at a reduced price, better quality, and shipped to the Ivory Coast. They need a minimum order so they extended their fundraiser. If you would like to support this cause you can contact the Rotaract liaison - Keith - click here.
