Greetings , and Happy Friday!

Sometimes, a smile says it all. That was definitely the case for Sebastiana from Peru. Here is her story from our partner, Camino de Vida:

At 85 years of age, Sebastiana lost her eyesight and completely lost her ability to walk due to severe osteoporosis. Learning how to interact with the world in a new way because of one issue is hard enough, but Sebastiana was battling two. “It is very hard to meet all of her physical needs,” her daughter told us, and even though she was often stuck inside all day, Sebastina never let that get her down.

Not too long ago, Camino de Vida provided Sebastiana with her very own wheelchair. She received the gift of mobility and in return, gave us the gift of her sweet smile. Now she can go to the doctor, ride in the park and enjoy being social again – she has a better life and shares that same sweet smile with everyone she meets.


Because of generous supporters like you, Sebastiana doesn’t have to be stuck inside all day. Thank you for providing the simple gift of a wheelchair to people like her all over the world.

  1. Hello Don, being inspired by Christ’s servants like you makes me understand just how each person doing a small thing turns into a tidal wave of wonderful things in the lives of so many people. I know these people feel so blessed to receive a wheelchair and it blesses me to help make that happen.
