Ableworld donates wheelchair to Ukrainian refugee!

Wheelchair Donation


When Russian President, Vladimir Putin launched his offensive into the sovereign nation of Ukraine in February, it's not only created violent international conflict that has pitted Ukrainians against Russians, its also generated a widespread humanitarian crisis.

As a result of the conflict in Ukraine, more than 4.2 million Ukrainians have fled their homeland since the Russian invasion began. Neighbouring countries such as Bulgaria, Poland, Romania, Hungary and Moldova have opened their borders to these refugees' seeking safety from the Russian troops. A total of 10 million people, 1 in 4 Ukrainians have left their homes, including those who are now internally displaced. This is one of Europe's biggest mass migrations since World War II. 

Hope Church in Crewe have been working tirelessly with volunteers to help get donations to those who need it most from the displacement. Lauren got in contact with our Crewe store regarding a refugee called Anya from Mykolaiv who needed a wheelchair to help her be mobile again.

Ableworld strive to support local charities where possible, offering help and support to others in need. So, when approached by Lauren, we were more than happy to help! Ableworld donated a transit aluminium wheelchair worth more than £250! We're thrilled to help get Anya out and about again!
