Over the past 17 years, the RICD Wheelchair Project has helped distribute over 10,000 wheelchairs and an additional 13,000 other pieces of mobility aid equipment, all free of charge and adapted to meet each recipient’s specific need under the supervision of a medically trained therapist. I believe that the service we offer is of vital importance, and the need is only growing. According to estimates by Thailand’s National Statistical Office, 19.4% of people with a disability currently need equipment. This number is too high.
Our tenure has seen dramatic growth over the years, and though we continue to grow, we are seeing severely diminished returns as having a single center has become the bottleneck of the services we are providing. We have reached a point as a project for us to adapt our model and expand the work we do not only to increase our output, but also make more widely available the services people with disabilities desperately need.
We must transition to taking the experience we have gathered and replicating the work we have founded here in all areas of Thailand and eventually our neighboring countries. Only by doing this will we be able to truly make an impact on the need Thailand faces.
