IMU-LDS Charities Wheelchair Initiative

IMU Cares has teamed up with LDS Charities on a new initiative, the “Wheelchair Champion; A Provisioning System”, where IMU will be providing wheelchairs to the community in need. The LDS Charities is a global humanitarian organisation that serves the poor and needy by working with local partners to meet local needs with sustainable local solutions, while building capacity in individuals and organisations. One of their biggest projects is the Wheelchair Project which spans 133 countries since 2001. This new project will provide an opportunity to lead our community partners towards self-sustainability, beginning with wheelchair placements through to maintenance and recycling of wheelchairs.

Year Started: 2019
Project Leader: Nurul Hanis Ramzi
Activities: Providing wheelchairs to those in need, advocating for the disabled community ie. equality, accessibility and disability, as well as supporting capacity building amongst the wheelchair users and their communities through transport mobility, through skills training on wheelchair, maintenance etc.

Serving the community is a manifestation of the University's core values but also as part of experiential learning, generally, a very effective form of learning - Walking the Talk.
