Greetings , and Happy Friday!
In the developing world, healthcare is not easily accessible and poverty limits treatment even when it is available. The same was true for Erlinda in this week’s Friday Story:
Erlinda is 77 years old and has a wonderfully large family. She lives with her husband and two of her adult children. Over the years, she has developed osteoporosis, causing her great pain and has immobility. On most days Erlinda is bed ridden.
Her husband is her primary caregiver and her children help out as often as they can, but a wheelchair was outside the means of what the family could afford. Thanks to one of our distribution partners in Nicaragua, Erlinda was given her very own GEN_1 wheelchair!
Now Erlinda can help around the house with cooking and light cleaning. “I give thanks to God who has blessed me with this gift. May God bless you and your beautiful work.”
Thank you for giving Erlinda a second chance; her rediscovered mobility is because of generous supporters like YOU.
