Meet Jocelyn, a man who struggled to attain life’s necessities due to his lameness. He was the first recipient of a P.E.T. Cart. Jocelyn now has greater independence and opportunity to become more active within his community. We have been able to distribute over 200 Personal Energy Transportation Units to individuals similar to Jocelyn.
I visited with Abu and Mohamed at their workshop at Approved School, Wellington on Monday. Their organization is called Kyphoscoliosis Initiative for Therapy and Empowerment Sierra Leone (KITE Sierra Leone). They have been working along with Africa Surgical for several years now and they seem to have a well-organized program.
Kite-SL is the first organization registered with the Sierra Leonean Government, to protect and promote the special interests of disabled people with spinal deformities. They closely cooperate with Africa Surgery by providing fieldwork support for their Spinal Surgery Program.

It has been my privilege to work closely with two such persons. In the 1970s here in the USA we were trying to get businesses and public places to be accessible for persons with handicapping conditions.

The chairperson of that MOTH Committee was Edna Jo Steinbeck. She stood 28 inches tall, but in spirit she was eight feet tall. When she stood on a high stool to speak at annual conference the churches paid attention. When she was 34, I had the sad privilege of presiding at her funeral. Continue reading
