DCHA representatives Steve Doty and Mike Harbour met with Kosovo governmental representatives from the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare during their visit to Kosovo in May 2015. The purpose of the meeting was to inform the Ministry of the planned joint wheelchair project between HandiKos of Kosovo, ROC Wheels and DirectConnect Humanitarian Aid. The Ministry representatives were very receptive of the project and pledged their support for the implementation.
Currently HandiKos is in the process of identifying eighty disabled individuals who will be recipients of wheelchairs that will be sent by sea container sometime after the first of the year 2016. After the arrival and distribution of these chairs, the team of specialist from ROC Wheels will conduct the site survey at the HandiKos site in Pristina, Kosovo for the upgrades necessary for production of the Rockit Chair at HandiKos.
