Free wheelchair from a charity organisation?

It is estimated that 100 million people around the world need a wheelchair without the means to get one and charity organizations do their best to offer help for those who need a wheelchair desperate. There has also been a lot criticism towards these donated wheelchairs, because those are not usually made in good quality. That is an ugly truth that if you try to manufacture something with low costs, then the quality of components and the final product suffers. Also the local producers are concerned about their  wheelchair businesses survival and it would be great if foundations could support local helping aid companies somehow. Wheelchair is also very personal equipment and should be exactly suitable for that particular person to make sure sitting is comfortable and no more injuries will be caused. That requires quite amount of background research...Tricky! I hope I did not scare you off and if you need a wheelchair or you want to make a donation, here are few foundations to contact to.
