Wheelchair rental program rolls out

Rotaract Blue has launched a wheelchair rental program to help make wheelchairs available to people who cannot afford to buy them.

The organization will rent used wheelchairs, at a cost of $7 per week or $25 per month, to individuals who are unable to pay for new wheelchairs due to a lack of health insurance or financial strain.

“The proceeds from the rental program will be used to purchase additional chairs,” said Rotaract Blue President Yvette Cacho. The Cayman Islands Cancer Society and Cayman Medical Supplies have donated 12 wheelchairs to the program.

Rental details are available on Rotaract Blue’s website, www.rotaractblue.org, or email [email protected]
