In February 2020, Shaban sustained a spinal cord injury from a car accident and was confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life. Upon discharge from the hospital, Shaban did not have access to a wheelchair of his own. Thankfully, Shedrack Domingo, Physical Therapist and fellow Rotarian was able to provide Shaban with a wheelchair of his own through the Epignosis Physiotherapy Clinic in Moshi, Tanzania. With a big smile on his face, Shaban said, “I thought I will never go out again, but now the wheelchair is my legs.”
Keystone International Rotary E-Club is proud that Shaban is the first recipient of our Build-A-Chair, Save-A-Life campaign.
