Greetings , and Happy Friday!
This time each year I spend time reflecting on the things I am grateful for; my family, friends and all of you who have helped change lives through the gift of mobility. This week, I want to share the story of a boy from Honduras who is also very grateful for the way you changed his life through the gift of mobility:
At two years old, Brayan contracted meningitis and has been unable to walk ever since. As he grew up, he loved attending school and would do anything he could to get there, often resorting to crawling when he became too large to be carried.
When he received his very own FWM wheelchair, Brayan expressed tremendous thanks and excitement because he will be able to attend school every day―without having to crawl!
From the entire Free Wheelchair Mission staff, our provisioning partners and our recipients―thank you. Without you, we would not have been able to distribute over 800,000 wheelchairs. You have helped us change lives for people like Brayan.
I hope you and your loved ones had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
