Greetings , and Happy Friday!

Mobility dramatically improves a recipient’s way of life. While we don’t always get to see all the ways that a wheelchair changes someone’s life, sometimes just seeing the smile on the recipient’s face as they are placed into their wheelchair is more than enough to understand the positive impact it has on them.

At four years old, Menzi from Swaziland cannot walk or talk and his neck is not strong enough to support his head, but that doesn’t stop him from smiling every time he hears his parents’ voice. He is the youngest of four children and the only one with health issues. Menzi’s parents have tried to help their child in a variety of ways, including traveling nearly 100 miles to see a doctor in the hopes that they would be able to improve the quality of his daily life. When they heard about The Luke Commission’s partnership with Free Wheelchair Mission, they knew they had found an answer that would ease their concerns for their son.

Menzi was able to receive his very own GEN_2 wheelchair and his happiness was apparent to everyone around him. Now he will be able to spend more quality time with his siblings and interact with them while they play. “He will be so happy to be with them,” his mother lovingly noted.

Thank you for changing lives every day through the gift of mobility. Thank you for helping recipients like Menzi, to continue to smile and for providing them with hope for a better tomorrow.
