The Israeli Embassy in Cameroon will donate wheelchairs to disabled persons at the Christian Blind Mission (CBM) on Tuesday December 4 in the capital city of Yaoundé, Cameroon.

Alongside the Israeli Foreign Aid and Development Agency, Mashav, the Israeli Embassy will donate the materials as part of activities to mark the International week of People with Disabilities, as reported by Journal du Cameroun.

The Embassy is partnered by an Israeli NGO 'Wheelchairs for Hope' which has developed affordable, light weight and durable wheelchair models suitable for disabled children from developing countries.

This is the second time the Isreal Embassy will be donating wheelchairs after donating 150 to the Ministry of Public Health earlier this year.

It is equally the second time the Embassy will be visiting and donating to the Christian Blind Mission in months after handing a range of braille equipment in August. Earlier, the Embassy of Israel also donated braille equipment to Promhandicam Association based in Cameroon's capital city. The association serves the population of both Yaoundé and also disabled people from the centre and south of Cameroon.
