Gifts of Mobility in time for Christmas in Thailand

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Yesterday, just in time for Christmas and the New Year, we delivered both adult Pet carts and pull Pet carts to the Mae Sai Thailand Disabled Association run entirely by disabled persons living along the Thai border with Burma. The Association (under their supervision) will distribute the pull carts to rural area clinics that provide medical services to local disabled residents. The adult Pet carts were delivered in person as can be seen in the enclosed photos. We were very happy to support this effort as it is entirely non government and is organized by the disabled themselves. It was not an easy task to transport and assemble all these mobility aids, but the group did a spendid job using volunteers and members. One of the adult chairs had to be dis-assembled on the spot to get it to fit into a Suzuki compact 5 door car, but with considerable trial and error, we got all the parts safely inside so the cart could travel to the distant home of the disabled user. The disabilities varied from paraplegia to dystrophy to birth defect to stroke. Please extend our thanks and warm holiday wishes to everyone at Pet who so wonderfully support this work.
