Meet Ngon, a 65-year-old husband and father in Thanh Hoa, Vietnam who hasn’t let life slow him down.
He operates a carpentry shop out of his home, crafting doors and other pieces for construction projects that are sprouting up throughout the rural province. He also farms a small plot of land, all to provide for his family, which includes an adult son with Down Syndrome.
A childhood bout with polio left Ngon without the ability to walk on his feet. Instead, he would use his hands to walk. “It was unsanitary and uncomfortable,” he lamented.
Ngon recently received a new GEN_3 wheelchair from our local distribution partners. With it, he can traverse his property more quickly, be off of the ground (and out of the sawdust) while doing woodwork, and head out into the neighborhood to meet with new customers or make deliveries.
“This wheelchair is a memorable treasure,” he grinned. “Thank you for remembering people like us.”
Because of you, individuals like Ngon know that they haven’t been forgotten. Your generosity has given them a “memorable treasure”—the gift of mobility.
Thank you for choosing to partner with us in this mission.
