Just this year, we had the incredible honour of achieving full charity status from the Canadian government, they have acknowledged our work as important and necessary. And it seems like the work has just begun! At this very moment (Feb 2021), we have enough equipment to fill three 40' shipping containers, with plans to send two to Cuba and one to Peru. We're currently seeking funding to cover repairs and refurbishing, as well as shipping and storage costs, so we can continue our much needed work.
We hope you see the value of what we're doing for the worldwide disabled community and will help us provide the gift of mobility to those in need. Your donations are now tax deductible, so please give freely :)

He wondered about those living with disabilities in his native country(Peru) and other developing nations. Accessing basic devices like wheelchairs and walkers without economic assistance was simply impossible to these families. Sadly without the proper care and equipment, disabled individuals can often be forgotten and left confined to their homes.
