It was another hot summer day after several days of fierce heat. More than 70 participants joined the monthly meeting and finished refurbishing wheelchairs for Thailand.
In addition to the regular members, Sagami Women’s university team, Vietnamese team, and Tama Technical high school team, there were Akishima Chuo Rotary Club members, who have been supporting the Thai project. We also had Fussa high school students and other high school students, a boy named Kaito, Picasso Maria Christina, through Fussa Volunteer Societ. Christina is a granddaughter of the famous painter, Pablo Picasso and has been a resident in Fussa for over 27 years.
The wheelchairs complete with refurbishing are to be loaded into the container on 29th and shipped on September 2nd for Bankok. The donation ceremony is to be held at the end of October, after the Asian Paralympics, and Akishima Chuo Rotary Club members are palnning to attend it.
