Wheels for the World™ Brazil 2 (Sao Paulo)
July 23, 2021 - August 1, 2021
Join us in serving people with disabilities in the diverse country of Brazil. Host of the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games, athletes from around the world broke barriers of what was thought to be physically possible in sport. While perceptions about the capabilities of people with disabilities are improving, there are still negative perceptions throughout Brazil about those affected by a disability and few resources available to meet their practical needs. Nearly 30 million people in the country have a physical disability and many are confined to their homes due to the shame felt by family members and a lack of affordable mobility equipment. On this outreach you will have the opportunity to meet people who feel forgotten and trapped by poverty and offer hope by sharing God’s love and care for them. Join our team and use your gifts to serve as seating specialist, wheelchair mechanic or support member and work alongside our Brazilian partners to provide wheelchairs and Bibles to individuals affected by disabilities. Outreach costs are all-inclusive.
