Greetings and happy
In honor of October being National Disability Employment Awareness Month, it’s my pleasure to bring you this story from our distribution partners in El Salvador, Comandes de Salvamento.
As you can see, this young woman is very happy. Although she was born without the ability to walk, she has been blessed with the opportunity to work making clothes and decorations for her customers. Unfortunately, it was very difficult for her to sit at her machine for too long because it would become very uncomfortable. Now, with her new wheelchair, she can comfortably work at her machine and will be able to make more clothes for her clients as well as support her family. Thank you so much for the beautiful chair!
We love hearing stories from our partners about wheelchairs opening the doors to new possibilities for our recipients—and we love to share them with you because you make them possible. Thank you for partnering with us to help bring mobility, and opportunity, to people all around the world.
PS—it is our joy to let you know that Free Wheelchair Mission won the 2012 CLASSY Award for Health and Well Being. The CLASSY Awards are the largest philanthropic awards ceremony in the United States. This is a huge accomplishment for us—and for you, because without you it would never have been possible. Again, thank you for your support.
