PET MO-Columbia update 8/5/13

Goal to date: 1116 Built to date: 1129

*** A goal of PET is to get our PETs out to those who need them most, and
into the most isolated of places. I am pleased and proud of how well we are
able to do that. Two recent reports and photos from Thailand tell these

— A woman who is a polio survivor is shown on her PET MO-Columbia
produced PET, with her dog as a companion. She supports herself collecting
and selling plastic containers.

The Thailand Foundation to Encourage the Potential of Disabled Persons
sent the photos.

— The second photo is of a student in the Yardfon Vocational Training
Center who has a brain injury which affects his mobility. He uses the PET
daily to move from room to classroom, etc.


*** A full truck load will be shipped to Gleaning for the World, an NGO that
has done a good job of distributing PETs for us before. On August 16 PET
MO-Columbia will ship a load including child, adult and PULL PETs, plus
sewing machines, fabric, walkers, canes, and medical supplies. With a load
like this every cubic inch (almost) of the truck is utilized. Sewing
machines, boxes of fabric, walkers, etc. fit in between the crates of PETs.
