Greetings and Happy Friday!
I love getting stories from the field about recipients who no longer have to live their lives from a back room in their home. This week I wanted to introduce you to Ethel whose world became larger the moment she received her very own wheelchair:
Two years ago as Ethel tried to get out of bed, she realized her legs no longer worked. “It was just too painful to walk,” she said, “and I haven’t walked since.” Because she is bedridden, she moved in with her son so he can help take care of her.
Ethel was so excited to receive her very own GEN_1 wheelchair from our partner in Swaziland, The Luke Commission. She couldn’t believe that she would no longer have to spend every day and night cooped up in her room. “Thanks to God for this chair” she exclaimed!
Thank you for helping to provide recipients like Ethel with the gift of mobility every week. I love that $77.91 can transform someone’s life so quickly and I’m grateful to each one of you for helping this vision continue to grow, one wheelchair at a time.
