Help us put the wheels in motion

What an amazing year 2024 is shaping up to be in the history of Wheelchairs For Kids Australia (WFKA).

We are on the eve of celebrating the manufacture of our 60,000th wheelchair to brighten the lives of mobility-impaired children worldwide.

What a milestone! Just imagine the impact those wheelchairs have made on the lives of all the children, many now adults, and their families.

We’re sure you’ll agree, that regardless of their geography, every child deserves the chance to live a fulfilling childhood and look forward to a bright future.

Sadly, there are millions of children worldwide living with disabilities who simply don’t get the access to the mobility aids available to children in Australia. Many are left to live their lives on the ground or on a bed, missing out on a normal childhood and locking out the potential to thrive.

With your support, we can continue to build our All-terrain Adjusta Wheelchairs to send to children in less-developed countries, unlocking a world of possibilities and propelling these kids towards a better future.

By having access to their own set of wheels, children and their families stand to gain so much:

  • Access to Education: children can attend school and participate in learning.
  • Social Inclusion: a wheelchair provides a means to join in social activities, allowing children to interact with peers, make friends and be included more fully in community life.
  • Health and Wellbeing: wheelchairs give mobility and independence that improves physical health and mental wellbeing and often significantly increases life expectancy.
  • Empowerment and Dignity: access to a wheelchair gives children greater control over their movements and freedom to engage in daily life.
  • Family and Community Support: providing a wheelchair makes it easier for parents to transport the child as they grow, allows them to work and encourages greater community support.

Our goal is to raise the funds for 500 additional wheelchairs to be built in 2024-25. Your generous support can help us reach this milestone.
