PROJECT CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL ZURICH
A wheelchair for the Oncology of the Children’s Hospital in Zurich
Very often, inquiries from families reach the oncology of the children’s hospital in Zurich, and it is asked whether a wheelchair would be available for a transitional period or even just for an order. This was unfortunately not possible in the past because there were not enough wheelchairs.
Thanks to a sponsor from the Principality of Liechtenstein, it was now possible to issue a cost estimate for a special model and the wheelchair was manufactured by W. Hägeli AG in Zurich and can be delivered to the oncology department of the Children’s Hospital Zurich this month.
Many thanks to the sponsor from the Principality of Liechtenstein!
