The American Wheelchair Mission is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to deliver brand new free wheelchairs and mobility aids to physically disabled children, teens and adults throughout the world who are without mobility and lack the means to acquire such devices. Since 2003 Knights of Columbus have sponsored the delivery of over 70,000 brand new wheelchairs throughout the world. The American Wheelchair Mission estimates that there are over 100 million people, world-wide, who need and cannot afford a wheelchair. It is further estimated that, on average, when you consider family, friends, teachers, employers and others, for every wheelchair delivered the lives of about 10 people are impacted in a very positive way. This extraordinary program, embraced first by Knights in California, is now one of our Supreme Council’s “Featured 8” programs.
