      A Bridge for the Handicapped who live in Extreme Poverty

      The goal of the Bridge Program is to benefit all of the handicapped people in Chile who live in extreme poverty. The program covers all 13 regions of Chile.

      Within the framework of this government program, FEDES is participating in the storage and distribution of 250,000 blankets, to be delivered in stages, with the object of improving living conditions for these families throughout the country.

      The first 4000 wheelchairs have also been distributed by FEDES, in cooperation with the Institute for Normalization of Social Security, a state agency in charge of the elderly. You can imagine the reaction when handicapped people like those shown below are given a free wheelchair, after never having had one their entire lives!
