We recently went to the community of Chumvi, in rural eastern Kenya.
The PET Cart was given to Molinka Wangai, a mother of 3. We do not know exactly what happened to her but it seems to be a disability from birth. Her right leg is shriveled up, has no muscle tone at all. She is totally dependent on crutches. Continue reading

Last Friday, Gary asked me to say a blessing over the #284 PETs (mostly child sized) that are now on their way to India. PET West MI
contributed #90 child PETs to the shipment. They are going to The Fellowship of Physically Handicapped (FPH) in Mumbai, and Gran Seva Trust in Kharei, near Gandevi. Eighty are going to disabled children around Navsan. Ishwar Naik is the man in MI who had the vision to help children in India. In 2012 he saw a news report on PET. In 2013 he took one child size PET to Pyria (find her picture attached) on his trip to visit family and gathered names of more children in need of mobility. In 2014 he raised shipping funds with the dream of sending a full overseas container of PETs. It took over a year, but he finally
received the needed approvals to import duty free. 3 years after learning about PET, #284 PETs are on the way. Continue reading
I was coming from market and I met with this bendficiary of PET International coming from school. A very bright boy who I believe is likely to score highly and join secondary school.
I talked with him and thought I should share with you how your company has transformed his life.
Previously he would be carried to school.

Dear Tricia, We did a distribution last September 29. It was great. Recipients are so happy. They learn very quickly as you may see it the video attached. Please kindly sent it to your father. I wanted you to know that yesterday we sent him some magazines on the distributions made.
Un abrazo, [a hug]

I visited this Compassionate Hands for Disabled to give kids food etc. and then i realized that there was a need for PET carts and childrens wheelchairs, We have so far given them two PET Carts. The kids call them, their “cars” and they are happy to have this kind of mobility.
This is the PET cart that I had requested, another child finds mobility freedom!
