A Wheelchair Adapted Vehicle for Johannah

A Wheelchair Adapted Vehicle for Johannah

Personal message

My name is Johannah Makhubedu and I am 49 years old. I live in Pretoria, Gauteng, South Africa.
I am a woman in a wheelchair. I was born disabled when my mother was involved in an accident when she was 8months pregnant with me and I was born weak on all my limbs. I was walking slow when I was still little but my condition become deteriorating as I grow older.

I need funding to buy a Wheelchair adapted vehicle that I can drive. I struggle to use ordinary car as I always got injured when I'm being put into car when they pick me from the wheelchair into the car.
I am an in depended person so would like to go to driving school to learn to drive myself. This vehicle would not be a luxury to me but it will be a means of transport to doctors and shops. I see other disabled people who are able to drive it hurts me as I cant go anywhere myself except to sent someone. Please help me to be free also and be able to help myself also.

I will like to reach my target in 6months time as want to learn to drive so by the time I pass I would be able to continue driving without loosing the momentum of the training.The R350 000 will be used like this:


R300 000 will be used to build the car in UK according to my needs and disabilities, as they will assess me and how I would sit and drive in the vehicle.
R50 000 will be used to import the car from UK to South Africa.

Currently and struggle to ride a car to go anywhere I would like to go, so having this kind of car would be a great relief as now my mother and family members don't know how to transport me. Now they just leave me behind when we have trips because it frustrates them to travel with me. And I'm always at home as I cant travel anywhere. I just go to short distances with a wheelchair and when it rains it's just a problem for me also.


Please assist me to be free and start to live as now I feel I don't have life living like this.  My family they just leave me behind when we have to go on trips because it frustrates them to travel with me. This car will eliminate the travelling problems for me as I will be able to travel together with family and be in dependent. this vehicle will be a much important aspect of my life as it is the key for me to start living and actually be able to socialize with people as I am always indoors because I can't travel in cars.
