Delivering Hope, Mobility and Freedom

Philanthropist Kenneth Behring Visits Bali and Indonesia Donating 250 Wheelchairs Along the Way.


Kenneth E. Behring, the Founder of the U.S.-based nonprofit organization The Wheelchair Foundation recently traveled to Bali to donated 30 wheelchairs to needy recipients on the Island.

Facilitated through Bali's Senang Hati Foundation and accompanied by Cherie Nursalim of United in Diversitry, the 30 chairs for Bali were among some 250 similar chairs distributed by the Foundation to those in need in Yogyakarta, Jakarta and other areas of Indonesia.

The Wheelchair Foundation

Behring, a successful American businessman and philanthropist, also founded the Blackhawk Museum and the Behring-Hofmann Educational Institute in Blackhawk, California. In 1997, he pledged $20 million to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History and in 2000 he pledged an additional $80 million to rebuild the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History.

In 1990 Behring donated shipments of wheelchairs to relief organizations in Eastern Europe and Africa. Seeing the tremendous joy these donations created for their recipients, he embarked upon a world-wide crusade donating wheelchairs in every country he visited. On June 13, 2000 (His birthday) the Wheelchair Foundation was established at a ceremony in Washington, DC. and has successfully donated over 500,000 wheelchairs since its inception.

Delivering Hope, Mobility and Freedom

The Bali donation of wheelchairs was jointly organized by the Unity in Diversity Organization, Senang Hati Foundation and the Rotary Club of Bali Unud.
