Yarmouth Rotary Seeks Used Medical Equipment

Collection throughout April & Collection Day April 28th

The Rotary Club of Yarmouth will be collecting used mobility devices throughout the month of April. The mobility devices for collection include crutches, folding walkers, leg and knee braces, wheelchairs, canes, bicycle carts, and strollers. No shower or toilet devices.

The mobility devices will benefit disabled adults and children in developing countries in Africa. Many are the victims of the polio disease and have been left disabled. They are often unable to be an active part of their communities because of their lack of mobility. These devices will help people be able to reach their village to collect water, go to school, accept jobs, and be active participants in their communities.  Below is a list of drop off sites in the mid-Cape area. Pickups can also be arranged by contacting [email protected]

Collection Day – There will be a collection day held on Saturday, April 28th from 9am-12noon at Lighthoue Landing Shopping Plaza, 845 Route 28 in South Yarmouth.
