Bolivia: Support with new wheelchair

Benedicto Vargas from Hichuraya is confined to a wheelchair. The father of five sons lives with a small invalidity pension and his wife’s work. However, when his wheelchair became unusable, he could not afford a new one. In cooperation with the community organisation for people with disabilities, we provided him with a new functional wheelchair. Benedicto and his family are happy and grateful that he is now mobile again.
