Wheelchair for Grace

My name is Grace Nyiiro. I am 39 years old.

On November 20th, 2015, I was in a car accident that caused injuries to my spine and left me paralysed. I have been unable to function normally since then.

Before the accident, I had just returned from Sweden where I had completed my masters degree in social work and human rights.

Unfortunately I have failed to receive proper rehabilitation because of high costs and lack of services in Uganda. I feel stuck not being able to do anything for myself and relying on others.

I am writing to seek support to fund a more functional wheelchair that will improve my ability to live more independently.  I still believe I have the ability to live more meaningfully.

I am very grateful for your support because it keeps my hope alive.

Thank you, Grace Nyiiro
