This initiative aims to improve mobility for people with disabilities (PWDs) in 63 provinces and cities of Vietnam by providing assistive devices which are appropriate to their physical conditions, mobility level, and intended use.

Thus, through this initiative, our foundation supports PWDs to live independently, maintain mobility, in addition to helping them confident be part of the community.
