I have attached some pictures to this mail, they were taken when we finished assembling the Mobility Carts. We will have more pictures to share with you when we do the official handing over and the programme for the children with special needs at the Mmofra Park in Accra tomorrow the 7th of July. Thank you

Lamisi is a 53 old woman who was born with cerebral palsy and other physical deformities, her entire life has been limited to the compound of their round mud and thatched house in the northern region of Ghana. Her movement within the house has never been easy for her and her sibling’s, they have to pick her and move her around the house which is very tiring and not easy for people that provide her with such assistance. With the Pull Cart, the siblings easily move her around the house. Now her world is not limited to the confines of her house but she is able to come out of her house and enjoy other
parts of the village at her convenience and at the convenience of the people that help her.

Mobility Worldwide representatives are busy this summer attending major international conventions to help spread the word regarding our mission of bringing mobility to those in developing countries who are unable to walk. Jim Conn, Chair of the Board of Trustees, and Scott Walters, Executive Director, attended the 100th Convention of Rotary International in June where Bill Gates of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation was featured as the keynote speaker. In conjunction with the convention, a reception was hosted by the Office of the Liberian Consulate General at which time plans were shared regarding the development of an Atlanta Affiliate and efforts to increase capacity in West Africa.
“Currently, our staff are following up with 150 recipients of the mobility carts. They send me some of the photos. I wanted to share them with you. As you can see from the photos some of the recipients were carried on their Mom’s back, some were carried in arms and some crawled. But now all of them have mobility. Grateful to Mobility Worldwide for making carts for those who need mobility and our donor who helped the carts get to those in need. Best regards, Connie”
