An adapted vehicle is essential to transport people with reduced mobility, therefore, the association Adrya de Sabiñánigo, has launched a crowdfunding to acquire a vehicle with certain characteristics for these users. A few weeks ago, they launched this form of funding or collective collaboration. But the need became more evident this summer when they had to transfer a person in a wheelchair to the hospital in Jaca due to a medical emergency.

The Adrya Association needs €15,000 to buy the adapted vehicle
“We are aware that having a vehicle is necessary. We have worked with public transport in the area, but in this case, it was broken down and there is no other accessible resource that could take us to deal with a health emergency,” explained Ana Piedrafita, a member of Adrya.
A participant in the camp for people with functional diversity that took place in Isín from August 19 to 28, had to go to the hospital in Jaca. With cerebral palsy, in a wheelchair, very reduced mobility and with a chronic hip dislocation, she began to have intense pain in her left hip.
“At first it was well managed, because she was transferred by ambulance, but the next day she still had a very intense and unbearable pain, so it was decided to take her back to the hospital,” says Ana. In this case, “since it was not considered an emergency, we did not have an ambulance, so we had no way of going to Jaca,” she adds. The Alto Gállego region “has an adapted vehicle, at a specific time, and by the good faith of the manager and the driver, we could go to the hospital, but they could not take her back”. So they were forced to rent a van in Zaragoza.
“Having an adapted vehicle is absolutely necessary, and it would also be available in the area for this type of needs that we have detected,” Piedrafita stressed.
The Adrya association was created in January 2020 in Sabiñánigo, with the aim of caring for people with functional diversity, regardless of their age and diagnosis, providing respite and support to families. Its mission is to improve the quality of life of people with functional diversity and their families through therapies of cognitive, sensory, motor, and functional skills stimulation; and leisure activities adapted to their needs, through the Leisure Club, weekend family respites, and camps on key dates such as Easter, summer or Christmas, providing participants with quality leisure and their families, moments to replenish batteries and rest.
