Lara needs a wheelchair van

Fundraising to get Lara a wheelchair accessible vehicle

Mosgiel, Otago

Lara is a mum in her 30s living with Muscular Dystrophy. She is a solo mum of an amazing little 7 year old. Many think that New Zealand looks after our disabled whānua but the reality is very little support is available. Lara can not access any funding for a wheelchair accessible vehicle, so she is mainly stuck at home with her daughter. There are very few accessible taxis in Mosgiel and the cost is prohibitive even with the subsidy. Lara can’t take her daughter to sports, parties and the normal childhood activities we all take for granted. They both deserve the freedom to get out and enjoy life together.

Use of funds

An accessible vehicle for Lara. If we can’t fund a vehicle Lara will get the money to help pay for taxis so she can still leave the house.
