Amazon Elder with Polio Receives New RoughRider Wheelchair

Amazon Elder with Polio Receives New RoughRider Wheelchair

Nenekawa Toca

We’re excited that Nenekawa Toca, an elder from the Indigenous Nationality Waorani, that lives in the Amazonian region of Ecuador has received his new RoughRider wheelchair. He contracted polio in his early 20’s  when he first came in contact with western society in the late 1950’s. Nenekawa expresses how grateful he is to have his new chair, and is very happy knowing that his life will be easier  to combat with  all the complications he faces in places like the Amazon (high levels of humidity, rain and mud) for his day to day living. #roughrider #allterrainwheelchair #togetherchangehappens #mobility
