Description

MISSION Transforming lives by sharing the gift of mobility with the physically disabled poor in developing countries as motivated by Jesus Christ.

VISION In wealthy countries, a disabled person can get a wheelchair, however, there are over 100,000,000 disabled adults and children for whom the dream of a wheelchair is worlds beyond their expectations. They live without this basic form of mobility by crawling through life or waiting for a loved one to carry them to fulfill the simplest of needs--the disabled and the family members are thereby restricted from a full life. A small percentage of these folks are served by charitable organizations which ship re-conditioned wheelchairs or conventional-design wheelchairs to poor countries - a very costly and inefficient process.Our vision has been implemented by contracting with manufacturers in China. We've developed distribution partnerships with charitable organizations so that wheelchairs can be given free of charge. OUR VISION: To deliver 20 million wheelchairs!
