Uganda Project – June 12 through June 17 2023

Posted: 30th April 2023 by WAW Editor in Exciting News


From June 12 through June 17, 2023 Wheelchair Athletes Worldwide will be conducting its 5th international Project. After Projects in India, Nepal, Peru, and Indonesia where WAW donated a total of forty-four (44) wheelchairs to and conducted clinics with different non-profits, WAW will be conducting its next Project in Kampala, Uganda. Working with a non-profit in Kampala, a few months ago WAW sent 11 wheelchairs to Uganda in advance of the upcoming Clinic in June. A delegation of Ugandan sport representatives that were in Arizona for an adaptive coaching seminar took the wheelchairs back to Uganda with them so that WAW did not have to worry about the logistics and cost of transporting the wheelchairs. Their assistance and cooperation is greatly appreciated. The picture above shows the sports representatives from Uganda with the wheelchairs they took back with them. The picture was taken in Tucson, in a driveway, with Peter Hughes’ amazing and versatile van in the background. Let it be known that this van has been instrumental and invaluable in moving, transporting not only the wheelchairs that WAW donated but Peter Hughes himself.
