Help send wheelchairs to children in Ukraine
As a country ravaged by the devastation of a continuing war, Ukraine continues to witness the catastrophic effects on her citizens and particularly her children.
The Ukraine crisis has displaced more than 6.5 million people since February 24, 2022.
Sadly, these numbers are increasing by the day, as are the needs of children with disabilities. Dropping everything they owned, desperately trying to escape the constant barrage from artillery fire and missiles, families left their homes and their belongs. Many children are without their wheelchairs and other mobility devices.
To add to the already horrific situation Human Rights Watch is reporting that Russian forces are using banned antipersonnel mines across contested territories. Because of other conflicts around the world, we know that these devices create havoc causing death or maiming their victims. The need for wheelchairs is only going to increase.
Working with partners in Ukraine and surrounding countries, ROC Wheels feels called to provide wheelchairs for these children, and in so doing share the hope of Christ with their families. Our goal is to provide wheelchairs for children identified as having a need.
