Shipment Arrives in Kenya…
A container of wheelchairs arrived at Tenwek Hospital in Kenya. “We appreciate your support in a big way,” said Solomon Rop, the director of the wheelchair program at Tenwek. “May God bless all your team and the entire Free Wheelchair Mission [family]!”
…and also in Paraguay
A container of wheelchairs also arrived in Paraguay, where our local distribution partner, Jesús Responde, continues to distribute wheelchairs in big events held in vacant parking lots to maintain social distancing.
Their team of “mobilizers” sends their thanks as they hold these events through September at various locations to “provide wheelchairs to persons waiting for them for so long. Thanks!”
Ready to Go in Thailand
Our new distribution partner in Thailand, RICD Wheelchair Project, assembled wheelchairs from their first shipment, which had arrived in June. They’ll be sharing more photos and stories as they distribute these wheelchairs to people in need in the communities they serve.
Training Continues in Haiti
In the midst of recent turmoil that rocked Haiti, our distribution partner, The Walkabout Foundation, was able to proceed with training three new members of their distribution network. They send their thanks, love, and blessings to you!
Celebrating the Miracle of Mobility
You helped us reach our goal! A big THANK YOU to so many of you who supported the special 20th Anniversary edition of our Miracle of Mobility Live event.
Together, we were able to raise over $1.7 million to provide enough funds to send more than 21,250 wheelchairs to those living with disabilities in developing countries.
We are so blessed and honored by your support and are so excited for the individuals who will soon receive these new wheelchairs.
Thus far, we have also garnered more than 100,000 online views of the virtual program! In case you missed it or would like to watch it again, visit MiracleofMobility.org.
