The Rotaract Club at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has a project that will change the lives of many people who live in the Ivory Coast - wheelchairs for polio survivors. $150 is all it takes to purchase one wheelchair. If half of the Clubs in Rotary District 5650 could purchase just one wheelchair - for $150 - the goal can be met!

And, the project has gotten even better! One of the Ivory Coast Rotary Clubs - Rotary Abidjan Lagune - will provide a store and maintenance facility for fabrication and maintenance of wheel chairs.
