Joni with the Wheel for the Worlds' new wheelchair prototypeOur team in Wheels for the World isconstantly thinking of ways we can improve on the wheelchairs we take to disabled children overseas. And when they showed me this proto-type of our new pediatric-wheelchair design, I got so excited. It has the ability to recline, as well as to tilt-in-space. It also has the capability of 'growing' with a disabled child – the foot pedals can extend, and the back support can be raised. Oh, what a precious gift this will be to disabled children and their families and desperately poor countries! Our Wheels department is working with prisons where inmates will eventually assemble these special little wheelchairs. So this Christmas, please join Ken and me by giving a gift to our wheelchair outreach; after all, "Whoever is kind to the needy honors God" (Proverbs 14:31).

I love the idea of this and would love to be envolved with it. I sent you a message on FB. I am 57 and a 13 year stroke survivor have been in a wheel chair for awhile in my recovery and know what a blessing they can be. I no longer work but do drive and live in Balencia and can come out hour way to meet up sometime and see how I can help
