San Lorenzo Wheelchair Giveaway

Today was a really warm day, the sun was shining there was no breeze and hundreds of people showed up to help their loved ones into their new wheelchairs which were donated by Free Wheelchair Mission. In all 17 people received their new wheelchairs today. As I meet these people who are unable to care for themselves, or just unable to walk, I am amazed at the way the families rally around them to help them.

Today I took a lot of photos of the family members helping their loved ones into their new chairs. Although a still photo doesn’t capture what I saw in real life, I hope the photos will help you to imagine how these people suffer before they receive the gift of mobility. I also hope you will imagine with the excitement in the air as each received their new wheelchair.
