TOPRO donated 300 rollators to the Red Cross

 

 

The Norwegian company TOPRO decided to donate their surplus stock of their out fading rollator models to the Red Cross. The Red Cross in the province Oppland in Norway, where TOPRO is located, has had a co-operation with the Red Cross in Central Bosnia for almost 5 years. The donation of rollators is by far the largest donation the Red Cross in Bosnia-Herzegovina has received after the civil war, says Miriam Lovrinovic, leader of the Red Cross in Central Bosnia. The donation has a street value of about € 100 000.

TOPRO’s export manager, Josien Bouwman, was present when the first rollators where handed out in Bosnia. She says it made a big impression on her to see how the rollators changed people’s lives. There are hardly any walking aids available. Those that exist are old and not very useful. The TOPRO rollators will be the property of the Red Cross and lent out to people.
