THE STORY:

Founded in 2001, Free Wheelchair Mission is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to providing wheelchairs for the impoverished disabled in developing nations.

 

In developing nations where poverty and economic isolation are the norm, it is estimated that 100 million people need a wheelchair, yet cannot afford one. Already suffering with the pain, inconvenience, exclusion and indignity of a physical disability, many of these people with physical disabilities must endure further burdens. Some are forced to crawl on the ground or wait to be carried by loved ones to reach their most basic of needs. They are subjected to danger and disease. Many succumb to hopelessness. Safety nets are few, and available social services are scarce. Families strain to care for their disabled loved one within an already overburdened existence.

100 million people need a wheelchair, and yet this empowering gift of mobility is an economic impossibility, a dream far beyond their wildest imagination.
