Just over a year ago, part-time Casa de Campo residents Luis Gonzalez-Bunster and his sister Carolina Gonzalez-Bunster founded the Walkabout Foundation, to promote awareness of paralysis and disabilities and fund research for spinal cord injuries.
Another important aspect to the foundation is the provision/donation of wheelchairs – the Walkabout Foundation recently visited Haiti with a donation of off-road wheelchairs for victims of the devastating earthquake in January this year. The Walkabout Foundation donated 700 wheelchairs to individuals who became disabled as a result of the earthquake, the following video was taken during the Walkabout Foundation’s visit to Haiti and shows the wheelchairs being donated to those people in need.
