March 2019 Recipients
Siti Mardhiah has received a $5,747 grant from the Mazda Foundation to purchase a modified trike for her 6-year-old son, Ali, who has Arthrogryposis.
Arthrogryposis means the joints in the body become permanently fixed in a bent position. As a result of his condition Ali is unable to participate in many activities with his family and friends.
As many of Ali’s joints are fused all aspects of the trike will be modified to allow him to ride it independently and actively take part in family and community events.
