  • Description

    The presentation of specially adapted tricycles to children at the Rehabilitation Centre for the Physically Handicapped at Kinshasa has become an annual event.

    This year the machines were handed over by M. Becker, President of the Lion's Club - an organisation which collects funds for charitable purposes - in the presence of Congolese Minister Dominique Iloo.

    Members of the Lion's Club watched as the children tried out their new tricycles. They can be operated by the use of arms and hands. There was no mistaking the joy they brought to the invalids who are once again able to move about under their own power. Many others await delivery of these treated machines.
