This ministry will make wheelchairs and other medical equipment available to disabled people. For them, the wheelchair becomes a highway to independence, opportunity and full engagement. Today, over 75 million people around the world need a wheelchair for basic mobility.
There are two possible dimensions for our congregants to participate. One is through contributions of wheelchairs or other medical equipment directly or by referring others to contribute. Pick-up will be arranged. There is no necessity for these items to be collected by or stored at Faith Lutheran Church.
The second facet of participation would be by assisting in loading the equipment on to trucks which deliver it for refurbishing and eventual delivery to people in recipient countries. This activity occurs occasionally about two to four times per year, not on a regular schedule.
