The ship loaded with 170 wheelchairs left Tokyo Port for Malaysia on July 2, and it is scheduled to arrive on Port Klang on July 13. The number of the wheelchairs which have been sent to Malaysia so far is 1,216, which is the largest number among donated countries, overtaking Vietnam.The detail is from here.
This time, we sent wheelchairs unrefurbished and our partner, ALEPS, bears the refurbishing work instead. So we sent necessary parts such as new tires, tubes, and repair tools, too. We also loaded 30 child seats and several orthosis, making the 40-foot-long container full.
Before the ship’s departure, we did loading at our monthly meeting place on June 26. It was sunny outside and inside the container was so hot and humid that we had a lot of water, taking care not to have heat illness.
