Community Raises Money for Wheelchair Accessible Van for Paralyzed Brothers

In the United States, two brothers Matthew and Adam Chaffee, who use wheelchairs, have received a wheelchair-accessible minivan thanks to donations amounting to $80,000 from several groups of strangers.

The van is customized so they can drive it on their own. This means that the siblings, who are based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, will have a lot more independence.

The two brothers were paralyzed in two separate incidents but remained positive about their situations. A number of local people who heard about the young men’s stories were touched by their outlook and began raising money for the van.

According to a local newspaper, the vehicle has hand controls that allow the brothers to drive without using their feet.
