About UCP Wheels for Humanity
UCP Wheels for Humanity (UCP Wheels) increases access to mobility and improves quality of life for children and adults with physical disabilities in developing countries. Based on the belief that every person has the right to mobility, the organization has continued to innovate and be leaders in the field since 1996, bringing quality products and services to people with disabilities around the world. UCP Wheels’ makes strategic investments with a goal of improving health and rehabilitation services for people with physical disabilities. Based on the needs of each country in which we work, we offer one or more of our capacity-building programs. These include the provision of wheelchairs, physical therapy and rehabilitation training and empowerment programs. All initiatives include a strong emphasis on advocacy to create sustainable, community-based systems to support long-term change. UCP Wheels also works on strategic global initiatives including the improvement of supply-chain for assistive technologies to less resourced settings and research initiatives to better understand the needs of people with disabilities worldwide and the impact of interventions.
