CNVLD receive wheelchairs donated by Aussie charities

Two International standard racing wheelchairs were donated to the Cambodian National Volleyball League (Disabled) last week by Australian Wayne Slattery, who was representing the Wyndam Disability Action Group and Disability Sport and Recreation.

“Thanks to the generosity of the Australian donors including Paralympic athlete Richard Coleman, CNVLD athletes now have five international standard chairs to prepare for a global wheelchair race Cambodia will be hosting for the first time in the 2011-12 season,” CNVLD General Secretary Christopher Minko told The Post on Saturday.

The Invacare Musashi Top End Eliminator and Wild Dog Chair, which are some of the best equipment available on the market today according to the CNVLD, were handed over during a special ceremony at the CNVLD office in Phnom Penh last week.

One of the chairs is slated for use by the elite level team in Phnom Penh, while the other has been sent to Battambang for the benefit of an all-female team.
