Joe Hackman discusses the challenges facing Non Government Organizations delivering aid internationally with Gerry Riley of the Wheelchair Foundation. Gerry Riley has been the Transportation and Logistics Manager for the Wheelchair Foundation since 2003. During that time, he has helped ship nearly 1,500 orders, a total of more than 650,000 wheelchairs, all over the world. He has learned a lot about the problems that can be encountered in trying to send aid. The Foundation provided wheelchairs to several countries following the Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004, the Pakistan earthquake and Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and the Chengdu, China earthquake in 2006. Gerry is proud to have been able to help after these disasters. He's also happy to have helped get aid to those with daily mobility needs throughout the world.
