Her parents had the perfect name for her.
When they first laid eyes on their beautiful baby girl, they named her Gift.
Gift was born with no hands or feet. When she was still a toddler, her parents took her and fled from their home in South Sudan due to violent conflict and deteriorating conditions.
In 2016, the family eventually made its way to a refugee camp in neighboring Uganda.
Although she has led a challenging life, Gift has never stopped smiling. She’s bright, curious, and eager to learn new things. She loves school, but has a hard time getting there without mobility.
But because of friends like you, Gift received a new wheelchair through the Walkabout Foundation, one of our distribution partners that serves in Uganda.
“It will be so easy to take her to school now!” exclaimed her mother, excited about the possibilities that the new wheelchair will bring. “I’m so happy. God bless you people!”
Your generosity gave the gift of mobility to Gift, who is a blessing to her parents and everyone around her.
There are still many more individuals around the world like Gift, who have so much potential and are waiting for a wheelchair.
Would you give the gift of mobility to someone in need during this holiday season?
