Since 2012, Addis Guzo has been operating a centre for people with disabilities in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia.
Through its actions in the areas of Counseling, Aid Provision, Rehabilitation, Education and Sport, we promote the social and professional integration of people with disabilities.
The Addis Guzo centre is run and operated exclusively by Ethiopian employees.
Our work enjoys high recognition by national and international organizations, local authorities and diplomatic representatives.
The Addis Guzo wheelchair workshop in Addis Ababa is unique in Ethiopia.
Every year we deliver around 600 wheelchairs to people with disabilities.
Through our collection campaigns in Switzerland, we receive a large selection of models and can thus respond to the individual needs of our clients.
Thanks to a comprehensive repair service, we guarantee a long-term use of the delivered mobility aids.
