World Cup kit to keep fans rolling

2010-05-19 00:00

WHEELCHAIR-BOUND football fans travelling through South African airports during the 2010 Fifa World Cup will be given a surprise package.

With just days to go before the kick-off to the world’s most spectacular football spectacle, the QuadPara Association of South Africa (QASA), Rolling Inspiration magazine and CE Mobility have joined forces to provide wheelchair users with a repair toolkit to keep them mobile during the tournament at O.R. Tambo International, King Shaka International and Cape Town International airports.

Said Ari Seirlis, QASA’s national director, “This unique project will introduce the association to the global world and raise international as well as national awareness of the plight of many South African people with disabilities.

“We hope the toolkit will be of assistance, but, most importantly, we want people to become familiar with our association, the work that we do and the support that we can offer.”

QASA is a leading disability agency supporting the needs of thousands of quadriplegics and paraplegics across South Africa.

Rolling Inspiration is published by Word for Word Media and owned by QASA, and is circulated to 5 000 people with mobility impairments. It is the only glossy disability ma­gazine on the continent.
