I saw a young man transformed today. I'd met him two weeks earlier. He was shy, hopeless and removed. He did not leave his home because he did not have a wheelchair that his mother could transport.
Everything changed today when he saw the donated wheelchair I'd brought especially for him from our warehouse.
It fit Javier perfect, this wheelchair was waiting for him. It was the only one in the warehouse chair sized perfectly for him that didn't need repairs, it was ready to go!
Wheels of Mercy delivered a wheelchair to Marla, (a diabetic, single below the knee amputee) who was unable to leave her home after the frame of her wheelchair had collapsed making it inoperable. The next day after receiving her call I went to our warehouse and was able to locate what seemed to be a custom fit chair just waiting for Marla to call hers, it was perfect. Marla told me she liked it better than the chair she had before.
