Mzimba Boma Malawi … It is far too easy for most people to take their feet and legs for granted. Each morning as our eyes open we move quickly from our beds and begin activities for the day. We do not give it a second thought. Walking from here to there takes place without even thinking; the bed to the kitchen, kitchen to konde (room to greet visitors), konde to the outdoors, and then to the broader world around us. We do it with ease, without thought. Our legs and feet are always there, and always ready to give us a lift wherever we want to go. Continue reading ““I could move about in only a limited way.

Kalino Village, Southern Malawi … “Where could she be. She is no where to be found. But how can this be as she cannot walk? Question after question we could not answer as we waited for her to come to meet with us. It had been a rough time getting to this village and most of its inhabitants were out tending their gardens.

Pull Mobility Cart gets Lamisi around her village in Northern Ghana

 

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.

Thank you
