Website information about The Canadian Wheelchair Foundation/ Fondation Chaise Roulante Canada (CWF).
“ The Canadian Wheelchair Foundation/ Fondation Chaise Roulante Canada (CWF) is an independent Canadian registered charity dedicated to:
Raising awareness of the needs and abilities of people with physical disabilities
Delivering mobility into the lives of children, teens and adults in the world who have no means to acquire a wheelchair
Transforming lives through mobility, and with it giving to all those deprived of it by war, disease, accident, natural disaster and advanced age, independence, dignity, hope and opportunity With the support of our Canadian and international partners and the generosity of independent sponsors CWF is transforming lives throughout the world -- one wheelchair at a time.
Since 2003, the Knights of Columbus have sponsored the delivery of tens of thousands of wheelchairs to people in need all over the world, showing exemplary compassion, generosity, and dedication to bringing mobility to those in need.
Councils, parishes or individuals are able to sponsor entire containers to the country of their choice.
Wheelchair Sunday parish drives are held in churches across the country and have sponsored thousands of wheelchairs to far away places, as Sierra Leone and Vietnam.
Knights and their families themselves travel to get involved in a life changing hands-on mission that allows children, teens and adults around the world to have their prayers answered with the gift of hope, freedom, dignity, independence...a wheelchair!”
