FACES PAKISTAN INITIATES WHEELCHAIR DISTRIBUTION
To extend its services to the special persons and to help them become useful members of society, FACES Pakistan initiated Wheelchairs distribution. This initiative helped the disabled persons in their mobility and assisted them in moving independently and performing their tasks with greater comfort. This initiative also enabled the youth to continue their academic and social activities which were not possible otherwise due to their disability. Wheelchairs were distributed in Madni Masjid, Ghazi Abad as well as in St. Henry High School, Lahore. The purpose of distributing the wheelchairs in places of worship was to provide support to the elderly and crippled so that they can perform their religious rituals with comfort and ease. Wheelchairs were also distributed in Society for Special Persons, Multan, Youth Development Organization, Rajan Pur, and Rescue for Heaven Ministries, Lahore. Moreover, students of Lahore College for Women were also given the wheelchairs for their Social Action Project. So far, 198 wheelchairs have been distributed by FACES Pakistan.
