Transitions Foundation and the Escuintla Rotary Club spread some goodwill in the village of Escuintla on Feb. 5.
Alex Galvez, executive director at Transitions, with assistance from Nazario Quino, made the journey to the small Guatemalan village to deliver 10 wheelchairs to the San Jose Hospice. The delivery is the first installment of 40 wheelchairs to be delivered to the group sponsored by the Rotary Club.
The wheelchairs will be used in the facility by patients suffering various illnesses.
“It is very important to get these new wheelchairs to this group of people,” said Galvez.
