A Mother’s Faith is Strengthened
You brought hope to a mother and daughter from across the globe through your faithful prayers and support! Ganea from Romania desperately needed a miracle for her daughter, Denisa, who has multiple disabilities. When Ganea gave birth to Denisa, she had a twin brother, but only Denisa survived. Denisa is paralyzed on her left side, cannot walk, and her eyesight is impaired.
As a single mother who solely provides for her six children, this mother was at the end of her rope. “We are very poor, and I don’t have a lot of possibilities in my life,” she told us. Ganea knew she could never afford a wheelchair for her daughter with her small salary as a cleaning lady. But that afternoon, our Wheels for the World volunteers made a visit to her home, and a miracle happened… all because of your faithfulness!
Ganea watched as our volunteer physical therapist and mechanic tenderly and perfectly fit Denisa into her very own wheelchair. Ganea was moved with emotions and a smile came across her face! She told us, “I cried out to God because I know He loves me, and He’s helped me every time. He has never abandoned me in my hardship, and He’s answered my prayers through you!”
God will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people. -Hebrews 6:10
With this wheelchair you sent, Ganea can take Denisa to school, to the market, and outside in their community. Because of your faithfulness, Ganea and her family have so much to smile about and praise God for today. Thank you for changing the lives of children with disabilities, one child at a time.
“I want to thank you for this wheelchair for my daughter from the bottom of my heart. This wheelchair will change her life. We are very glad, and God bless you.” – Ganea, mother from Romania
