Wheelchairs Change Lives

Doreen knows how a wheelchair can change a life. When she lost her ability to walk, Doreen had to crawl to get from place to place. She had no one who could carry her, so she stayed at home in her small house. She quit going to church, or the market—or anywhere.

Doreen had lost her mobility and her dignity. A new wheelchair from Namwianga Mission Hospital changed Doreen’s life. Now she moves around easily in her house and yard. She can even do some gardening from her wheelchair.

The wheelchairs distributed by Namwianga Mission Hospital are built on-site from parts that are readily available. They are sturdy and made specifically for rural conditions. The cost for one wheelchair is $200. Partial gifts are welcome.
