Wheelchair Foundation ( is a special mission that the Geneva Lions Club has taken on for this fiscal year. In addition to our commitment to raise funds for the blind and deaf, our members will give extra support for a another most worthwhile cause. We are supporting Kenneth Behring’s foundation which is committed to providing a wheelchair to every person in the world who can not walk and can not afford to buy one. Mobility, something most of us rarely think about, brings hope and joy into the life of a person who is otherwise imprisoned by their physical limitation.
