"CIVITAN INTERNATIONAL – FREE WHEELCHAIR RAMP" PROGRAM
USA, Canada, India, Russia, Locations in Europe and Africa.
"Wheelchair ramps are a necessity for many people with disabilities, but cost thousands of dollars to install. Many cannot afford to have them built at their homes, and are unable to enter or leave without help. One of Civitan's most widespread club projects is the construction of wheelchair ramps, built on-site for those in need."
Civitan International has volunteer service clubs around the world.
The goal of the organization is to help people in their own communities. Volunteer help ranges from working with homeless shelters, to volunteering at retirement homes to building wheelchair ramps.
The organization maintains an emphasis on helping people with developmental disabilities.
