Wheels for the World™
Wheels for the World provides life-changing mobility and the hope of the Gospel to people impacted by disability worldwide.
Providing the Gift of Mobility
A person with limited mobility is tragically often excluded from life in their community because they have no way of moving around. But the gift of a wheelchair literally lifts someone from the dirt to a seat of dignity and opportunity.
Wheels for the World provides life-changing mobility along with the hope of the Gospel to people impacted by disability around the world. You can get involved by donating a wheelchair, serving on an international outreach, or giving so that wheelchairs can be restored and sent to someone in need.
How Wheels for the World™ Works
Volunteers, known as "Chair Corps," collect used, manual wheelchairs across the United States.
Wheelchairs are restored at 15 federal, state, and private correctional facilities in 10 different states, and we're looking to grow. Inmates are trained to restore wheelchairs to like-new condition.
Transportation of the wheelchairs to restoration shops and shipping ports is an ongoing need. With over 10,000 wheelchairs collected each year, we are always looking for people to help.
Each recipient receives a custom-fit wheelchair and is presented with the Gospel message. Recipents also receive a Bible in their language, training in wheelchair use and upkeep, and they are connected with a local Christ-honoring church.
