In 2020 Irish Wheelchair Association is 60 years in existence. Ireland has changed over the last 60 years, but Irish Wheelchair Associations vision remains the same – where people with disabilities enjoy equal rights, choices and opportunities in how they live their lives. Through this visionary lens, we focus on ability, believing in what people can achieve irrespective of their disability or perceived limitations.
We are delighted to see that the Barbie Fashionistas line now includes dolls reflecting physical disabilities, including a doll in a wheelchair and a doll with a prosthetic limb. This is an important step where children and adults with physical disabilities are profiled in this positive way.
Please donate today to Irish Wheelchair Association so that we can ensure that we can deliver our vital services to our 20,000 members. Every person with a physical disability deserves the support they require to live the life they wish to live.
