UK troops help disabled families in Basra

From the MOD website:
UK troops working with Multi-National Forces in southern Iraq have been helping with a project that has seen 200 wheelchairs donated to needy families in Basra.

The wheelchairs were donated to Sheik Monsoor AL-Tmimi and the Mercy Foundation, a charity based in Basra which helps Iraqis injured by acts of violence in the city such as mortar attacks.

The success of the project is a result of strong support from all the organisations involved.

Nowhere does it mention the wheelchairs are homemade. The Iraqis probably think this is bleeding edge design in the West. No wonder they want us out.
