PI+World Vision+local NGO’s distribute Gifts of Mobility in Sierra Leone

DSCN1427I want to share with you plans and highlights of the joint PET International, World Vision, One Family People, and Enable the Children, PET cart distribution.

Attached are 2 photos of the distribution exercise conducted in the Western Area Rural District, particularly in Grafton and Waterloo. The recipients are mainly from Manahanaim Orphanage for Disabled Children in Grafton formerly known as Melrose School. Six PET carts were donated there with 4 going to the children of the orphanage and 2 from Freetown who were identified by One Family People (OFP). Four PET carts were donated to children identified by Enable the Children (3) and I AM Christian Mission School (1).

DSCN1400The distribution was made possible by World Vision which organization transported the 10 PET carts to both locations, and One Family People and Enable the Children both of which supported the cost of bringing Mobility Sierra Leone from Bo to do the assembly of the PET carts.

The other planned locations for the distribution are Moyamba, Bo and Pujehun. Pujehun has never had a PET cart distribution and so this will be their first.

World Vision is hiring 2 trucks to transport the 56 PET carts to the 3 locations this week. They are also supporting the transport of Mobility Sierra Leone to all 3 locations as well as living costs for the 3 rehab workers from MSL and Bo rehabilitation centre so that they can assemble the PET carts and help with the assessment of the recipients. I will be travelling along in the World Vision car from Freetown to all 3 distribution sites.

Travel date is proposed to be Sunday 26th June beginning with Moyamba.
