One of the coolest ways to help a handicapped person is to give them a wheelchair. When the students from Wayne State came to Mexico City to help the poor, we worked through a local church to assemble and distribute 30 wheelchairs to the handicapped living near the church who do not have the resources to buy a wheelchair. People brought their disabled sons, daughters, and grandparents to receive wheelchairs. Many receiving chairs wept with joy to now have the ability to move around instead of being carried. Many had not been out of the their homes in years. The organization Free Wheelchair Mission is amazing for how they change lives. Every $71.88 given to the organization provides a wheelchair to someone in the world. We receive the boxes and parts for the chairs through Operation Blessing and pay for the shipping.
