Freedom Chair for Ro-il Espera

I'm a paraplegic since 2011. A Freedom Chair would help me go to church, the grocery store, and to visit my friends.

UPDATE May 11, 2017: 

I live in a secluded area with a rough road here in our province Balamban, Cebu, Philippines. It gets muddy when it rains. Main road is about 400 meters away from our home. There's a part where it's uphill and rocky so my wheelchair can be stuck. Even from the gate it's not even accessible to go out. I need to ride a vehicle just to go somewhere. Grit freedom chair is very much suitable for me but it's not available here in our country, nobody here makes this kind of wheelchair.  I am thankful enough that grit has this crowd funding program. I'll be able to gather money and even a small amount can be a huge help. Your donations is highly secured and it goes directly to the organization and not to me. With this wheelchair I'll have my freedom and I could live like normal people. One thing that encourage me about grit freedom chair is that it's repair and maintenance can be done in a typical repair shops, so it's not a big problem in the future. Please help me make this goal a life changing experience and I'll be forever grateful for whatever amount you could share. God bless you and thanks for reading.
