Annual Wheelchair Distribution

Every year, Caritatea Association, in collaboration with Joni and Friends USA organize a distribution of wheelchairs, walkers and crutches, for people with disabilities. Our collaboration started 17 years ago, supporting people in need, from Cluj and nearby cities.
The wheelchairs are distributed on a cooperation agreement, after filling up a form, accompanied by a medical certificate.
