British Paralympic wheelchair racer and Christian Anne Wafula Strike (below) is helping the charity International Nepal Fellowship (INF) to raise funds for wheelchairs for children with cerebral palsy in Nepal.

Cerebral palsy is the most common cause of disability for children in Nepal.  Disabled children there do not have wide access to equipment and often have to be carried around by their parents.

Last Sunday (3 February) Anne Wafula Strike presented the Radio 4 Appeal on behalf of INF to raise funds to purchase suitable wheelchairs.

She said: “I had to wait 29 years to receive my first wheelchair … A wheelchair can provide independence, equality and involvement in society – giving people with disabilities the chance to improve their lives and the lives of others.”
