Wheelchair donation program-Rotary of Great Britian & Ireland through the Wheelchair Foundation of the UK
Chosen as a preferred charity in 2006 by Rotarians all over Great Britain and Ireland and then being regularly recognised in Rotary’s 'Opportunities to Serve' projects has ensured that a sustainable delivery of all terrain brand new wheelchairs are regularly delivered to the needy in the developing countries.
From the humble beginning in District 1040, Yorkshire with the goal to send one 40 foot container of 280 wheelchairs to Lesotho all 29 districts have been supportive in the sending, to date in excess of 33,000 wheelchairs to 30 countries.
The Lady Khama Charitable Trust was founded in 2002 by her eldest son and current Patron of the Trust, His Excellency Lieutenant General Dr Seretse Khama Ian Khama. The aim is to continue the community work that Lady K. spent so much of her time pursuing.
Lady Khama Charitable Trust raises funds for existing Botswana based charities that focus on improving the lives of vulnerable women, children, and people living with disabilities within Botswana. Often these organisations are in remote communities that otherwise struggle to procure support. Our strength is in local fund raising, identifying the beneficiaries most in need of our help, and then providing this support.
To date we’ve provided support of over P 16 million ($ 1.6 Million USD) to our beneficiaries. See the list of LKCT Trust Programs
