Rotary Club of Navarre is excited to welcome Bob Britson from Rotary Club of Panama City, FL who is joining us to discuss their Global Wheelchair Grant Project.
About the Wheelchair Project: This project will provide matrix seating mobility units (customized wheelchairs) for at least 9 severely disabled young people in San Salvador and provide training and resources to enable local caregivers and technicians to maintain on-site assistance with chair usage, fitting, and maintenance. The goal is to take initial steps to establish an on-going program similar to the Rotary Wheelchair Clinic in Costa Rica. Rotarians will work with leaders of Fundacion FUNTER and community providers to identify needy recipients establish a site for the wheelchair building activity, recruit Rotarians and other volunteers to help build the customized matrix chairs, and provide training for FUNTER personnel in matrix wheelchair use, fitting and maintenance.
Guests and prospective members are invited to attend. Please RSVP to TJ Goulet, Rotary Club President by phone at (850) 396-2552 or email at Navarrerotary@gmail.com.
We will have a buffet lunch available at Noon for a cost of $11.
We meet at Beach Community Bank at 9290 Navarre Pkwy, Navarre, FL 32566
