Emerson, 80, worked hard as a mechanic and plumber in Lima, Peru, until a stroke at age 61 changed everything. Left with impaired speech and paralysis in his legs and right arm, he depended on his wife, Gridia, who is blind, to help care for him. Struggling without income, they relied on help from their community, and getting a wheelchair seemed beyond their reach.
Without mobility, Emerson could not get to a doctor, even when he was sick. This persisted for 19 years until he received his very first wheelchair from our distribution partner, Camino de Vida.
“We weren’t expecting a brand-new wheelchair,” exclaimed Gridia. “God makes all things new! Thank you for giving us a beautiful new wheelchair. God answered our prayers!”
Not only can Emerson now go to needed medical appointments, he can simply go outside to get some sun, which his wife said he hadn’t done in 19 years. “It’s like he’s coming back to life,” she cheered.
