August 20, 2017 We have finished refurbishing 90 wheelchairs for Nepal.

 It’s still August, but neither boiling hot nor rainy and about 70 participants, the biggest number so far, joined today’s work. We refurbished 29 wheelchairs and have finished 90 wheelchairs for Nepal in total. We also finished packing 43 for the Phillippines with no refurbishing work. We don’t have to since our partner organization in the Phillipines is able to do refurbishing work by themselves.

 It’s a little after ten a.m. Lots of volunteers had already come and started to work.

 Today’s participants: 12 members from Tokyo Akishima Chuo Rotary Club, 10 Nepalese residents in Japan, 15 students from Sagami Women’s University, Fussa High School students, Tama Technical High School students, and other volunteering members.

We sometimes fix armrests.

These armrest need exchanging. First, we remove them.

We get new cushions and cover them with new cloths.

Nicest treat for the work in such a muggy day: watermelons and cool drinks!
