Friends, Supporters, and Backers,
This website is filled with pictures of lots of people; people who build wheelchairs, people who prepare the way and children receiving the gift of mobility. The pictures of wheelchair recipients receiving mobility and hope from young people here at home say more than words can. We have a great opportunity when we fit a child into his/her new wheelchair. We can share our love, and help them achieve their best potential. While we may only spend a few hours with each child, we want to leave something behind that lasts a lifetime. The gift of mobility mobilizes both the child and the whole family. This also equips people, in-country to build their own wheelchairs and trains professional caregivers in-country to provide continuing care. As a Christian faith-based organization we understand that our ultimate goal is to illustrate where our strength comes from. The boundaries between people who are served and the people who serve them begins to disappear when we reach out to each other. We are excited to share this great opportunity with people all over the world and welcome you to our website. Please feel free to let us know you are here by filling out a contact form and we would love to get you involved in making a difference in our world.
