Staircase Is Not a Problem Any More

Staircase Is Not a Problem Any More In the beginning of this year, the Associations of Disabled People of the nine cities of Kazakhstan, the participants of the Project “Decent Life for Disabled People”, have received a present from Saby Charitable Foundation – the portable stair-climbing mechanisms to complete Invataxi transportation services. These units are used for the transportation of wheelchair-bound people, making their lives significantly easier, since they allow, with some effort, to lift up and down a wheelchair-bound person at the stairs in the buildings not equipped with elevators and ramps. This kind of 'stair rover’ does not require the equipping of stairs with special rails or other auxiliary joints.

Many people with special difficulties in travelling managed for the first time in many years to leave the walls of their houses to visit the health care facilities and social institutions, to meet with friends or just to see the sun.

For the present moment we have an agreement for the supply of the second lot of lifting units from Italy. In mid-summer one stair lift for each association in Taraz, Kyzylorda and Ekibastuz will be delivered to the sponsored Associations of Disabled People, while the associations in Astana and Shymkent, in view of the larger Invataxi fleet of motor cars, will additionally receive one more unit.
