PET International’s Executive Director goes on his first distribution trip!

Our new Executive Director is experiencing PET in Guatemala this week. The team is being hosted by Hope Haven International, a distribution partner since 2000. They distribute mobility (including PETs) worldwide. In Guatemala they have a wheelchair production shop. Because of the proximity to the US and hosting abilities, two to three PET teams go there a year. HHI makes for an excellent partner because not only do they help us distribute the PET carts to those in need but they also employ those who are disabled to help us assemble the carts and distribute them. On these trips, volunteers participate in mobility distributions and other tasks to help those in need. Here are some pictures of the team and a wide shot of the Hope Haven Int’l production facility.
