Many Hands for Haiti delivers Gifts of Mobility

From Hope Reformed Spencer – Finishing Touches:

Today was already our last full day in Haiti. The week went by faster than any of us expected, but we aren’t ready to leave.

We delivered PET carts in the morning. These PET carts are for people who have difficulty walking. Yes people, not pets. PET stands for People eating tarantulas. Jk lolol. It stands for Personal Energy Transport cart. We split up into two groups. One group assembled and delivered two carts while the other group took one. It was another opportunity to see the smiles on these people’s faces despite the fact that they have so little.

Rylie and Carli were in the group that delivered one cart. We noticed how well people manage without the technology that we consider a necessity. For example, we couldn’t find the guy we were delivering the cart to, but there was a man walking down the road and he helped us. He simply yelled Richard’s name and from quite a ways away he answered.

Brenna and Abby were in the other group and handed out dolls and hats to the kids along with the PET carts. Karmen’s mom knitted the hats and dolls. There were 3 babies who received hats, and 4 little girls who received dolls.
