The Chariots of Destiny Organization is raising funds to provide 100 wheelchairs for individuals living with spinal cord injuries in Kenya.

The Chariots of Destiny Organization is a registered nonprofit organization based in Nairobi, Kenya (East Africa) and whose aim is to advocate for road safety and to empower individuals living with spinal cord injuries.COD was founded by Ms. Casey Marenge inspired after she was involved in a tragic road crash which left her quadriplegic, paralyzed from the shoulders down and on a wheelchair.
The first project that members of the Chariots of Destiny Organization embarked on was to donate a wheelchair to James, a 27-year-old paraplegic living in rural Kenya. As a result of poverty, the enormous expenses incurred by his disability and lack of any financial support, James could not afford a wheelchair and had to crawl on the ground or be carried out by his father twice a week just for sunshine. Members of COD, led by the organizations founder Ms. Casey, donated a used wheelchair to James so as to provide this much needed form of mobility. Through the years, members of the Chariots of Destiny Organization have continued to advocate for road safety aiming to reduce the number of those injured through road crashes. The COD team have also met hundreds of persons with disabilities in the country that are unable to afford a wheelchair and most end up either using the same worn-out wheelchair for years and in some tragic cases have to be carried around by relatives or friends, pushed around on a wheelbarrow or bicycle or crawl on the ground just to get around.
By donating to the ‘Adopt a Chair Project’ you will be supporting the efforts by the Chariots of Destiny Organization (COD) to provide wheelchair’s for individuals living with spinal cord injuries in Kenya. By partnering with us in the first phase of this project you will support COD's aims to provide a wheelchair to 100 paraplegics or quadriplegics in Kenya and enable them to regain some form of mobility and experience the freedom they so richly deserve.
We at the "Chariots of Destiny Organization" are extremely grateful and humbled by your donation. COD guarantees that the funds raised through this campaign will be used solely for the "Adopt a Chair" project.
