The UNL Rotaract Club held some fundraisers to provide wheelchairs for polio survivors in the Ivory Coast. A former member of UNL Rotaract - Koko - is from the Ivory Coast and a polio survivor. He tells the story of how getting a wheelchair changed his life. Read the story - click here.
 
They have an opportunity to get wheelchairs at a reduced price, better quality, and shipped to the Ivory Coast. They need a minimum order so they extended their fundraiser. They will be reaching out to all Club Presidents to ask for your support. If you would like to support this cause you can contact the Rotaract liaison - Keith - click here.
