SPAR Eastern Cape’s Wheelchair Wednesday campaign has been raising awareness about the difficulties associated with the use of wheelchairs since 2011.
Every Wednesday in August, corporate individuals and companies are invited to partake in scenarios that highlight what complications those with disabilities face on a daily basis.
After spending four hours in a wheelchair and completing various tasks, they submit reports on their experience.
In turn, it shows businesses and companies in the metro how adequate their facilities are for those with disabilities, and what changes they need to make to be more accessible.
The campaign, which is the brainchild of the Association for Persons with Physical Disabilities, wraps up with a formal function where the handover takes place.
