Foundation To Encourage Disabled delivers 16 PET carts along the Thai-Burma-Laos border

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

On August 5th, we delivered 14 adult PET carts, 1 PET child’s cart, and 1 PET pull
cart (16 total) to a gathering of 3 disabled organizations along Thai-Burma-Laos
border – a round trip of 10 hours from our workshop. Most of the recipients
were paraplegic stroke survivors but several also survived severe birth defects.
The majority of these folks survive by selling national lottery tickets from their
carts. Thanks to all and warm regards.

a winner. Continue reading
