Rachel Swart Fund - Successful Charity 2018
The Rachel Swart Fund has been in existence for 55 years and has helped over 5000 clients living with disabilities with various mobility aids. Their fund is well known among professionals in the field of disability who are working with clients from disadvantaged communities and who are not able to afford the devices that are necessary for their mobility or a device that would prevent further deformities from taking place. They receive applications from schools in the Western Cape that are working with children with special needs and from various hospitals and homes for the disabled. Their fund has become a life line to those who cannot afford these very expensive appliances, especially motorised wheelchairs which cost in the region of plus minus R25 000. They receive thank you letters, photos and evaluation forms from the clients expressing their deep gratitude for the wheelchair that has brought them so much freedom and independence and the ability to feel included in society.
