“It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.” –Muhammad Ali
Since 2007 we have:
273 Wheelchairs distributed in 2020
6300 Wheelchairs distributed so far
We aim to distribute 300 wheelchairs in 2021
Wheelchair Project in Bangladesh
With a population of 160 million people, disability is a major concern in Bangladesh due to the lack of support and funds.
Having access to a wheelchair is a great and easy way to manoeuvre for people where walking is difficult or impossible due to illness/injury, but not many poor and needy families can afford it, especially those living in rural areas.
G & Y has always aimed to assist those most in need and support families who are facing difficulties financially in affording wheelchairs. Our team has been providing vast majority amount of wheelchairs to the disabled and needy people in Bangladesh since 2007.
Alhamdulillah, in 2017 we have funded over 1,600 wheelchairs. Since inception we have distributed over 5,000 wheelchairs. Each wheelchair costs a price of £70.
From the mercy and blessings from Allah, our future plan by 2020 is to make sure to achieve a goal of distributing more than 10,000 wheelchairs around Bangladesh, which would mean more hard labour, but if that’s the case then Insha’Allah it would be achieved no matter what the cost.
