IRVINE, Calif., March 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- International nonprofit organization Free Wheelchair Mission recently teamed up with solar energy pioneer SunPower Corporation (Nasdaq: SPWRA, SPWRB) for a humanitarian project in the Philippines.  Earlier this month, the partnership distributed approximately 1,100 wheelchairs to people with disabilities living in the region.

"SunPower cares deeply about the people who live in the regions where we work," said SunPower CEO Tom Werner.  "We are excited about this partnership and appreciate the opportunity to help Free Wheelchair Mission expand its ability to provide the gift of mobility to those in need."  More than 150 SunPower employees participated in the building and distribution of the wheelchairs to beneficiaries around Manila.

"We are grateful for this opportunity to partner with SunPower," said Don Schoendorfer, president and founder of Free Wheelchair Mission.  "With their help, we'll be able to provide hundreds of additional wheelchairs to the Philippines, sharing the gifts of dignity, access and hope that a wheelchair can provide."

Founded by Schoendorfer in 2001, Free Wheelchair Mission has to date provided in excess of 550,000 wheelchairs to people with disabilities living in 78 developing countries.  Schoendorfer, an engineer and inventor by trade, developed the original FWM wheelchair model to navigate both the uneven rural terrain and inaccessible urban areas common to underserved regions of the world.
