It was an awesome week this week! 2,750 wheelchairs arrived this week, 1,650 arrived in Vietnam, 550 in El Salvador and 550 in Mozambique!

Did you know that poverty is one of the leading reasons for disability? In Mozambique, 54% of their population is living in poverty at this time (down from the 90’s).

The average life expectancy of those in the Mozambique is 50 years old.

Some good news: access to clean water is continuing to grow in Mozambique. Currently 34% of rural areas has access to clean water, but that number has continued to grow year over year.

An estimated 10% of the population in Mozambique is living with a disability ( that means about 2.5 million people).

This is the first container we have shipped to Mozambique! 

Thanks for helping giving mobility to those in desperate need.
