The ship for the Philippines has departed Tokyo Port.*

  The ship loaded with 83 wheelchairs for Jesus V. Del Rosario Foundation, our partner in the Philippines, departed Tokyo port at 18:00 on April 6.

  Wheelchairs (52), buggy-types (9), standing trainers (6), sitting-aid devices (13), stretchers (3), etc. are loaded. They are to arrive at the port of Manila, Philippines, around April 22.

  JVR Foundation was unable to receive the wheelchairs for the time being because of the corona disaster and the lack of means to deliver them to the children. However, we decided to ship the wheelchairs to the Philippines because we were told that the corona crisis had finally subsided and that they would be able to receive the wheelchairs.

  This brings the total number of wheelchairs sent to the Philippines to 1,024. Click here to see the graph of donation results.

The container was almost full.

The doors are closed and sealed with a key called “yellow seal.”
