PET MO-Columbia update 4/15/14

PETs built since 1-1-14 337

April 10th Greeting from our Distribution Team in Guatemala:

“Hola! We distributed 36 PETs yesterday. Hot, humid, and glorious day.
Imagine helping to give mobility to 36 people – awesome experience. The team
now functions like a well-oiled machine, with each of us doing what we do
best. But we only have 6 more PETs to assemble and distribute at the Hope
Haven International factory on Friday morning. Then we will wander the
streets of Antigua for half a day as tourists. All is well, Barbara Moran”

PET carts from Penney Farms Affiliate assembled in Trinidad, Bolivia

Govenor of Beni-Bolivia Govenor learning assembly 2013 BO cartThese photos were taken in the jungle of Bolivia, in the state of Beni and the city of Trinidad in November.

The governor of the state of Beni and his wife came to our hotel on Sunday to meet us, but he also got to see and learn about the PET’s. He asked us to help him to get all of them to Riberalta, his home town. It is about 10 hours by bus from Trinidad.

Due to the torrential rains and the massive flooding there, the Pets are still waiting to be delivered and distributed. Now that the rains stopped in mid-March we hope to send them to be distributed when we go down in July.

World Vision report on the distribution of PET carts in rural Uganda

201312WorldVisionboysonPETs 201312WorldVisionboysoncrutchesI wanted to share this report with you. As you can see we just received this from the World Vision office in Uganda following a distribution of a pair of PET carts to a couple in a WV Area Development Program. The photo and story are such a great reminder of the fantastic work you all are doing to bring the fullness of life for all, I cannot express enough thanks on behalf of all of us at World Vision. Thank you for helping us be the hands and feet for couples like this one.

Please share our thanks with all of your staff and volunteers. Along with this story I saw so many PET carts as we made our way across Zambia back in November of last year, it was so amazing to see so many people able to move across some really tough terrain. It was a good lesson for me in the difference between what a wheelchair can do here in the U.S. and how that wouldn’t last 5 minutes in the places we were visiting. We did, however, see lots of PET carts that were clearly much-loved and well used that were still on the go. What a wonderful gift!

Blessings on you all, thank you so much for your passion for serving the poor.

*** Three medical doctors from The Republic of Georgia were here last Friday
to tour the PET shop and office. It is always so good to have folks here
from the areas of our distribution. These gentlemen were all involved in the
mission of ACTS (A Call To Serve) that has its office here in Columbia. PET
& Container Project have made several shipments of PETs and sewing machines
to Georgia. Georgia is very near to Sochi, the site of the 2014 Olympics. Continue reading
