Sonia Thursby, CEO of Yes Disability Resource Centre - Helping our disabled community enjoy the beach more

While the majority of the known world are preparing or are already in some form of lockdown or movement limitations, Aotearoa and her citizens are already spending days at the beach and enjoying several outdoor family gatherings. All kiwis except for members of our disabled community who require a wheelchair for all forms of movement. Especially accessing our many beautiful beaches & seaside sceneries, due to the difficulty of maneuvering their chairs on sand and other similar surfaces. This summer, there is a gleam of hope in the form of access mats now laid out in parts of Takapuna beach. It will allow our disablled community to get closer to the water and ZOOM about the sand areas safely.  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
