Surfers Sunrise Wheelchair Trust

About Us


Who are we?

The Surfers Sunrise Wheelchair Project continues to construct 'rough terrain' wheelchairs and supply them to disadvantaged people around the world. In the underdeveloped countries where they are distributed, there is generally no Government funded safety net to provide medical aids such as wheelchairs, so the disadvantaged are heavily reliant on charitable organisations such as Rotary. Over 10,000 have been constructed and distributed since the project began in 1996. This means that, with your generous support, over 10,000 people, mostly children, have received a life-changing gift, giving them mobility and independence, and perhaps even a smile.
