90 wheelchairs finally reached Paraguay.(updated)

We’ve added a new photo.

  The ship with 90 wheelchairs for Paraguay left Tokyo port on March 8, 2022(Click here for the ship’s departure). It was expected to arrive at the port of Asuncion, Paraguay, around May 18. (Click here for the details of the project.)

  In addition to the disorder in marine transport, however, it took too much time to get tax-free permission in Paraguay. It was August 11 that we got the news that the wheelchairs finally arrived at the recipient, Asunción Villa Morra Lions Club. It was about half-a-year long journey. We started this project by refurbishing the first wheelchair for Paraguay in November 2020. So it was a long term project in one year and nine months.

  Ocean Network Express Pte. Ltd.(ONE), who offered marine transport for free, had made another offer of giving children some presents needed by them. They provided gloves, stationery, and other things. We put them along with wheelchairs in the container.

  From now on the Lions Club will be delivering wheelchairs and presents to children. We look forward to seeing the photos of children with joy on the wheelchair or having presents.
