On Friday, we had the privilege of giving out 22 wheelchairs, 2 walkers and 1 cane. That is what this job is all about! It is such a sweet experience to see people who are in such need, be able to come, be assessed and then leave with their own wheelchair. Most of the ones that came where older people, those who had been in accidents or those who have had a stroke. Only a couple that came had limbs amputated. The people who are severely handicapped cannot travel on public transportation and their families don’t have the money to own a car or call a taxi. They will be assessed at home and the wheelchair will be delivered to them. That is the blessing of having lots more assessors. We can now reach many more people.
