Wheelchair Delivery & Disability Service Vehicle

Personal message

We need your help urgently!

We need to replace our primary outreach & delivery vehicle that was destroyed in recent protest activity in Khayelitsha, Cape Town on 20 July 2020 - during which two of our team members had to abandon the vehicle and run to safety. This loss is crippling to our organisation, our insurance falls short by about R210 000.

We need this vehicle URGENTLY to keep delivering wheelchairs and services to children with disabilities and their families who cannot reach government services safely during lockdown.

To keep doing our work, we need a reliable vehicle to ensure our team’s safety, and the safety of the children and families we work with. Help us raise R210 000 by donating a small amount.

If 1 400 supporters donate R150.00 each, we can make this target and get back to delivering our services to children in need.

Shonaquip Social Enterprise consists of Shonaquip, a for good (not for profit) company, Uhambo Foundation and the Champions of Change Trust.

Securing a replacement secondhand Renault Trafic or similar vehicle (approx. R350 000) will allow us to keep delivering outreach services to children with disabilities unable to safely access government services during lockdown. The vehicle is also used to deliver vitally needed pediatric wheelchairs and services to hospitals, centres and clinics across the province.

Our teams face many potentially dangerous situations to bring services to children with disabilities and their families and we also use our company vehicles for staff transport of essential workers to decrease the risk of spreading COVID-19.

Purchasing a Secondhand Renault Trafic/similar vehicle: estimated at R350 000.00
