Order of Malta Australia


20 Wheelchairs delivered to remote villages in North East Thailand


The Order of Malta Thailand delivered 20 wheelchairs to remote villages to St.Anna Catholic church and four Health Centres/hospitals in remote sub districts of Ubon Ratchathani.

The Wheelchair Project has been running annually since 2016. The wheelchairs are purchased and  distributed to the sick and poor, many living in dire poverty, in towns and remote villages. The wheelchairs provide the recipients with greater independence as they are otherwise usually reliant on family to move from their beds.

This activity was part of the Order of Malta Thailand Wheelchair Lent Appeal. The delivery was moved forward as orginally it was planned for Easter Sunday.

All wheelchairs were gladly received by the recipients as before we arrived they were laying on the bed with little option of moving around the house or garden, for many laying on beds or floors 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The Order of Malta Thailand continues to Serve the Sick and the Poor to best ability.
