On March 11th, 2012, BLIA Durban Chapter in South Africa celebrated  Guan Yin Bodhisattvas birthday by organizing an event to donate wheel chairs to those in need with disabilities. The recipients whom were of all ages and races that received wheel chairs lived in remote areas that are hard to reach. BLIA Durban Chapter made special arrangements to pick up recipients and their families that lived in the remote mountainous areas and transfer them to the venue.
