I have always been fascinated by how people in other countries live. What do they eat? How do they dress? What are their homes like?
How does someone like me—someone who is disabled—live in, say, Africa? I Googled it. What I found could bring me to tears. The disabled in developing countries literally have to crawl on the ground. Those are the “lucky” ones. Others face a life in bed.
You could say knowing that ignited a passion.
With all of my searches of how to help, one charity kept popping up: Free Wheelchair Mission.
They provide low-cost wheelchairs to people in developing countries at no cost to them. Wheelchair recipients have been able to go to school, open businesses, and just provide for their families.
It’s unfathomable, but something I don’t think twice about is so out of reach to 100 million people around the globe.
