EAST BRUNSWICK -

There are 70 million people in the world who need a wheelchair, and a group from Middlesex County is trying to put a dent in that problem.

The group called Right at Home just got back from Costa Rica, where they donated 60 wheelchairs.

Their effort is part of a larger, global effort called the Free Wheelchair Mission.

On average, the group gives out close to 200 wheelchairs a day, and over a million overall.
