Speaker: Peter White from Make Me Mobile
Peter White is a Trade teacher at Wodonga TAFE and married with two children ages 23 and 19. Lachlan (son) 23 has Duchene Muscular Dystrophy, which lead to Peter starting a charity as he is fully aware of what the families that the Make Me Mobile supports, go through on a day-to-day basis. As Peter say "These people are doing life tough", and Make Me Mobile aims to take some of that burden away so they can concentrate on other things.
Topic: Make Me Mobile Charity
Make Me Mobile is brand new Local Charity and was set up to raise funds to supply wheelchair access vans to NDIS clients who can’t afford to buy their own. This can be for several reasons but the main one seams to be because the family is cut down to one income because one of the parents must be the Carer for the child with mobility issues.
.4% of all people within the Albury Wodonga who are wheelchair bound have their own transport to access the community. Make Me Mobile wants to turn this statistic around and give these families something to smile about.
