A dream come true

Gershwin Riddles, a quadriplegic living in Barkly West, was in his own words, “under house arrest for the past 27 years” until, with the help of QASA and the Bidvest Unity Walk, he was given the mobility he desperately needed, in the form of a new power wheelchair. With the help of Ayesha Paulsen, occupational therapy manager at Kimberley Hospital, QASA received the relevant application and information, and Gershwin was able to be seated in a wheelchair that suited his specific needs.

Thank you Bidvest for giving mobility to someone in need and helping QASA in developing the full potential of quadriplegics and paraplegics in South Africa.
