Thank you, Alhambra Rotary Club

Thank YOU supporters for helping us to bring mobility to many living with disabilities in the World! In Memory of Professor Luis Carlos.

Your dedication and generosity is invaluable. Your financial support helps increase public awareness and inclusion but most of all, it provides wheelchairs for people living with disabilities to help them to be included as part of a community and a loving family.

According to The World Health Organization, a wheelchair is one of the most commonly used assistive devices for enhancing personal mobility, which is a precondition for enjoying human rights and living in dignity. Wheelchairs assist people with disabilities to become productive members of their communities.  About 10% of the global population, i.e. about 650 million people, have disabilities (1). Studies indicate that, of these, some 10% require a wheelchair. In 2003, it was estimated that 20 million of those requiring a wheelchair for mobility did not have one. There are indications that only a minority of those in need of wheelchairs have access to them, and of these very few have access to an appropriate wheelchair.

On behalf of the Academy of Special Dreams Foundation, we recognize and thank each one of our supporters for helping us to make a more inclusive society in the World.   Thank you very much for your support and generosity.
