Greetings , and Happy Friday!
I love to share about recipients who don’t let their lack of mobility discourage them from pursuing their goals. This week, meet Muhammad from Indonesia:
When Muhammad was 15 years old he blacked out and fell face forward. When he woke up he was extremely weak in his arms and legs and lacked the strength to walk. After being rushed to the doctor, he found out he had damaged his spinal cord resulting in partial paralysis.
Despite his physical struggles, Muhammad has been determined to work to care for himself. He had just enough strength in his legs to push himself backwards on a skateboard he used to get around. He used his limited mobility to get to and from his current job at his family’s motorcycle repair shop so he could help support his family. But it wasn’t easy.
Although Muhammad had his skateboard to get around, he wished for a wheelchair knowing it would be easier and quicker. When he was placed into his very own GEN_2 wheelchair he knew this would drastically change his daily life for the better – he gets around much easier and can even travel to visit friends and family.
Muhammad had a setback, but he didn’t let that affect him. The wheelchair only helped him continue to fight for his dreams. Thank you for providing that gift to those in need every week. You are providing a simple tool that can help in so many different ways.
