Bring Zack Back Home: A Kenyan Wheels Across Africa to Build a Rehab Center for Africans with Spinal Cord Injuries

Zachary Kimotho lost the use of his legs in 2004 after being shot by a gunman in an attempted car-jacking. He is now wheeling across Africa in order to raise money to build a rehab center for Africans with Spinal Cord Injuries. If he raises enough money, his trip will end and he will be able to go home. If not, he is prepared to continue his 18 month journey all the way to Cape Town, South Africa to raise awareness for the cause.

The video below displays the conditions in which Kenyans with Spinal Cord Injuries live. Terrain is rough and much of the country is inaccessible. The video also displays the importance of adding a Spinal Cord Injury rehab facility in Kenya.
