In the heart of Fiji, amidst the challenges faced by those living with disabilities, there shines a beacon of resilience and determination—Nafitalai Uluinikorotabu (Nafi). A man whose spirit knows no bounds, Nafi has faced the harsh realities of life as a quadriplegic with unwavering courage and grace.

Imagine for a moment the simple act of mobility being a monumental challenge. For Nafi, navigating the terrain of Fiji in a wheelchair has been a daily struggle, a battle against both physical barriers and societal limitations. In a world where accessibility is often an afterthought, obtaining a wheelchair tailored to his needs has become an uphill climb, both financially and logistically.

Yet, amid these trials, Nafi's spirit remains unbroken. He dreams of a day when he can move freely when the boundaries of his world extend beyond the confines of his wheelchair. For Nafi, an electric wheelchair is more than just a mode of transportation; it is the key to unlocking a world of possibilities, a symbol of independence and freedom.

On December 28th, 2005, Nafi's life was forever changed by a spinal injury, leaving him paralyzed from the chest down. Since then, he has relied on the unwavering support of his family and friends for even the most basic of needs. But with your help, we can change that narrative.

Nafi's dedication to advocating for disability rights has garnered recognition on an international scale. He was honoured to be part of the prestigious US Department of State-funded program called the 'International Visitor Leadership Program' for his distinguished work in championing disability rights in Fiji.

Join us in supporting Nafi on his journey towards independence. Your contribution will not only provide him with the means to obtain an electric wheelchair but also empower him to reclaim his autonomy and explore the world on his own terms.

Together, we can break down barriers and pave the way for a more inclusive society—one where individuals like Nafi are not defined by their disabilities but by their boundless potential. Join us in unlocking freedom for Nafi and countless others who dare to dream beyond the confines of their circumstances.

We are hoping to purchase one of the models once the goal is reached. The wheelchair would then be shipped from Australia to Fiji. The stated target is inclusive of purchase and shipping. Here is a link to the website selling electric wheelchairs.
