QuadPara Association of South Africa
The QuadPara Association of South Africa (QASA) is a non-profit organisation that represents the needs of quadriplegics and paraplegics in South Africa. QASA’s mission is to be an effective coordinating, policy-making and supporting organisation, striving to prevent spinal cord injury and to promote and protect the interests of people with mobility impairments through advocacy, lobbying and delivery of services and products to people with disabilities.
The Sekunjalo Development Foundation continues to sponsor Quads4Quads, an annual event where up to 600 quad bikes and two-wheel motor cycles ride from Johannesburg to Durban and back over eight days to raise funds for QASA. This year, through our involvement, we were able to provide Lesetja Maphapo with his first power wheelchair.
