But beneath her contagious smile lies a professional competence that is only exceeded by her deep love for Jesus. Through Wheels for the World, Veronica has found a place where God can use all He has given her to change lives forever – beginning with her own. “Wheels for the World is a wonderful, tangible way to demonstrate God’s love to disabled people who are the poorest of the poor,” Veronica says. “For them, a wheelchair is an impossible dream. As we deliver that gift, we don’t just drop it off – we minister to the individual from the very first moment we meet them.
