January 2007:  In a joint effort with Wheelchair Foundation, American Support for Afghanistan donated 560 wheelchairs to Afghanistan, a country torn by war and littered with landmines. In January 2007, Canadian troops in Southern Afghanistan hand-delivered the brand-new wheelchairs to Afghan citizens with physical disabilities. The wheelchairs distributed are specifically designed for the rougher conditions of lesser-developed countries, such as Afghanistan. Extra heavy wheels, tires, and front casters, sealed bearings and nylon seating make these wheelchairs the best possible for most conditions.

In Afghanistan, two in ten adult men have lost legs to landmines or unexploded ordnance left over from conflicts in the past several decades; a wheelchair can help them regain their lives in an immediate and very tangible way. It's common to see Afghan people of all ages walking on crutches, having lost a leg after stepping on an improvised explosive device.

American Support for Afghanistan will continue to work with the Wheelchair Foundation to send more wheelchairs to more cities in Afghanistan.
