Review of the problem to be solved by the project: As of October 2019, the number of people with disabilities is about 2.8 million, which is 6.1% of the total population of Ukraine. Unfortunately, the number of people with disabilities in Ukraine is increasing every year due to the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine. The main problem is the lack of special equipment that allows people with disabilities to move and lead a full-fledged lifestyle. Wheelchairs or electrically operated wheelchairs are used for the comfortable transportation of people with disabilities. It is wheelchairs with electric drive that allow you to move independently. Most of these carts are provided by international charities or purchased on their own.Over time, such trolleys require the replacement of a battery, the cost of which is prohibitive for a person who receives only a disability pension — 1600 UAH ($ 64). The average cost of one battery is 9000 UAH. ($ 360). Thanks to the project, we plan to launch a pilot project in Vinnytsia and Ivano-Frankivsk region of targeted assistance to people with disabilities in the form of batteries for electric carriages.
Objective: To provide targeted assistance to people with disabilities in the form of wheelchairs batteries.
