    K of C Wheelchair Donations Surpass 100,000

    2/1/2021

    THE ORDER’S wheelchair program reached a major milestone in late 2020, surpassing more than 100,000 wheelchairs since the first donation 18 years ago.

    The Supreme Council donated 2,000 wheelchairs in 2003 to help land mine victims and others in Afghanistan and the Middle East. State and local councils have since purchased wheelchairs for people in need around the corner and around the globe, including in countries throughout the Caribbean, Latin America, Africa and Asia.

    Since 2009, this work has been done in collaboration with the Global Wheelchair Mission, which includes the American Wheelchair Mission and Canadian Wheelchair Foundation. It is also a featured program of the Faith in Action program model.

    “The partnership between the Knights of Columbus and the Global Wheelchair Mission has been a great blessing not only for our respective organizations, but most especially for the more than 100,000 people who have received the gift of mobility through our cooperation,” said Supreme Knight Carl Anderson. “I am proud of what we accomplished together and am grateful for the work of our brother Knights and their Christian charity.”
