Hello. My name's Jerry Roettger and I'm trying to start a process in Uganda where we teach locals there, how to make wheelchairs using nearby and affordable supplies. That way they can continue to make wheelchairs even after we leave.

My team of volunteer PT students and faculty from the Medical University of South Carolina and I will be going to Africa again in May 2019, to run a seating clinic through the One World Health organization, in Masindi. The money I raise goes directly to fund my trip and help purchase power tools I'm bringing and leaving with the locals of Uganda.

Our intentions are to treat patients while simultaneously showing the low supply and high demand for wheelchairs there. Eventually, we hope to draw enough attention and funding to officially establish a self sustaining organization. Your help is needed, and any contribution, big or small is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
