Wheelchair Cafe held in Cebu 車いすカフェ

leave a comment »

It has been more than three months since we did this ‘wheelchair cafe’ in Cebu. I have waited to finish the whole project, but feel that at least I have to write a bit about our activities. This was funded by ‘Imai Memorial Foundation’ and it was meant to follow what we did with JICA early this year.

We had nearly 40 participants during our operation of ‘Wheelchair cafe’ and we could fix or maintained some 15-20 wheelchairs there. Some participants came from the neighbors city of Talisay to help us, because they were trained in January. Overall this tproject was successful and we want to continue supporting the people with disabilities in the Philippines.

フィリピンのセブ島で、今井記念財団からの助成金で行った「車いすカフェ」から3か月余です。全体が終了してから報告をと考えていましたが、日にちが経ってひまいますので、いったんの報告をさせていただきます。1月にJICA基金で行った整備講座に続けての事業です。40人以上の参加があり、15-20台の車いすを修理・整備することができました。1月に整備講座を受けた隣のタリサイ市からも応援に来てもらいました。全体的には成功だったと思います。今後もフィリピンの障がい者支援は続けていきたいと思います。
