A Japanese non-governmental organisation (NGO) has presented 50 wheelchairs to disabled children in the northern province of Hai Duong.

The wheelchairs will facilitate the travel of the children and help them reduce dependence on their family.

The organisation, called the Volunteers Group to Send Wheelchairs to Overseas Children, collects and restores used wheelchairs before donating them to children abroad.

It has so far presented 664 wheelchairs to children in Vietnam.-VNA
