Rotary Club of Coronado’s Wheelchair project

The Rotary Club of Playa Coronado has been working on the Wheelchair Project for over 1 year. Their fundraising efforts have purchased over 300 wheelchairs for under privileged children living in Pacific beach & mountain neighborhoods. News of the wheelchair donations spread via Panama mainstream newspapers and radio shows. The numbers on the list of recipients needing wheelchairs increased rapidly. With the help of donation from residents in the beach areas, Rotary clubs in Canada and other Rotary allied organizations, close to $50,000 was raised to purchase and ship the chairs to Panama.


The Rotary Club of Playa Coronado received their first shipment of wheelchairs last month. They were delivered to grateful recipients. The second and final shipment is expected at the end of May.

Rotary meetings are held every Tuesday at noon. To learn more on becoming a Rotarian at the beach email:
