(Deutsch) Wir suchen Rollstühle!

Sorry, this entry is only available in German.

Wir suchen RollstühleFür unser Basketball for Development Center in Mutengene in Kamerun suchen wir neue oder gebrauchte, gut erhaltene (Sport-)Rollstühle. Damit werden wir das erste Rollstuhbasketballteam im Südwesten Kameruns gründen können. Außerdem helfen Sie Kindern und Jugendlichen mit körperlichen Berhinderungen, die bisher nicht über einen Rollstuhl verfügen konnten, ihren Alltag leichter zu bestreiten. Wir haben im Mai die einmalige Gelegenheit, über unsere Partnerorganisation Green Step e.V. etwa 10 Rollstühle kostenlos nach Kamerun zu versenden. Sollten Sie einen oder mehrere Rollstühle spenden wollen, setzen Sie sich bitte telefonisch mit unserem Vorsitzenden Dr. Rainer Schäfer unter folgender Telefonnummer in Verbindung: +49 6404 408999, kontaktieren uns über unser Kontaktformular Oder schreiben Sie uns eine E-Mail an:imp_mail
