Small Mobility Carts distributed to disabled children through DIF in Mexico

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I just received these photos from the folks in Acuña, Mexico. We have been shipping Adult Mobility Carts to this group for several years now, as Acuña sits just across the border from Del Rio, TX, only 150 miles from San Antonio. I believe you shipped your [MI-Holland] Child Carts directly to Mac McCain or Rodney Martinez in Del Rio. They are both heavily involved with the Del Rio Host Lions Club and are the prime movers who get out Carts across the border. Continue reading

Mobility carts delivered to Sarmada Rehabilitation Center in Syria

We just received some photos back from one of our partners in Turkey called the Union of Syrian Medical Relief Organizations (UOSSM) which has multiple hospitals across the border region in Syria. They received a container of donated supplies and equipment including several PETs. The PETs were brought to Sarmada Rehabilitation Center in village of Sarmada, Syria and as you can see in these photos and video, they were a big hit among the patients and staff. It looks like the PET brought a smile to this man’s face which is such a gift during these terrible times that the people of Syria are going through right now.

Thanks for this wonderful donation!

PET/MW: How are persons with disabilities represented?

How do you see persons with disabilities?

PET MO-Columbia Update 9-13-16
PETs/Mobility Carts built since 1-1-16 #1,159

The Washington Post today featured an article entitled “Hollywood’s narrow view of the disabled”, saying that “…people with disabilities are woefully underrepresented in the entertainment industry.” It went on to give some figures that are interesting. The Census Bureau reports that in 2010 56.7 million people in the USA, or 18.7 percent, had disabilities. It makes no distinction between kinds of disabilities. In this time of a stress on diversity and a push for “rights”, it was a plea for the movie/television industries to recognize that the lives of the disabled matter, and that they should be better represented. Continue reading

Does a PET or sewing machine change a person’s image or class?

What class are you in?

DSCN1147This 59 year old man was a passenger in the front seat of a truck that was slammed into from the side. He struck his head and chest on the dashboard and was unconscious for 13 days. On September 4 we presented him with a PET cart in addition to sanitary supplies.

Warm regards to all and thanks again.
