Russian, U.S. presidents donate wheelchairs to Kyrgyz disabled children

About 200 Kyrgyz disabled children received wheelchairs from Russian and U.S. presidents Dmitry Medvedev and Barack Obama.


Medvedev ordered to send advanced technical equipment to 50 disabled children in Kyrgyzstan after President Roza Otunbayeva asked for help.


Washington also responded by sending about 100 wheelchairs.


“Russia and the United States can do a lot for peace. This project allows to facilitate this cooperation,” Otunbayeva, who is no longer the president of the Central Asian republic said.


Each wheelchair costs around $1,500.
