Bread tags to wheels for children with disabilities

QASA donated wheelchairs to two learners from the Mason Lincoln Special School in Umlazi, KwaZulu-Natal, after the school collected bread tags. A third chair was donated by Polystyrene Association of South Africa. With the help of Umhlali Preparatory School, Mason Lincoln Special School collected enough bread tags over two years to receive three wheelchairs. This is the second wheelchair donation the school has received from the bread tags initiative.

The school notes about the donation: “It was a special moment when three Mason Lincoln scholars were lifted off of basic, borrowed wheelchairs with just had two straps as a seat to the comfortable padded chair.”

In a personal letter to QASA, Mason Lincoln Special School Principal, Mrs Morolong, stated: “We would like to extend our sincere and heartfelt appreciation for your contribution in securing two wheelchairs for our learners at our school Mason Lincoln Special School.

“These wheelchairs are really their feet and enable them to mobilise in and around the school and they allow them to function independently and explore their surroundings.”
