70+ million people worldwide are leg disabled. Without help, they crawl in the dirt.
Since 1994 over 70,000 mobility carts have been built. They currently show twenty-three affiliates where these carts are built by volunteers, and the location we toured is one of them.
This is a completed mobility cart. It is hand-pedaled.

The people receiving the carts are very appreciative because they will no longer have to crawl through the dirt to go anywhere. Their lives are forever changed.
We saw so much and learned so much that it is almost impossible to share all of it here, but if you have any interest or want more information, they are a not-for-profit organization and welcome donations. Feel free to contact them through the various links on their website to obtain more information, schedule a plant tour, or learn more.
