Summer 2014

Partners in Transforming Lives Through Mobility

The summer months have provided a chance to catch our breath and take stock. Our partners continue to honor us with tremendous dedication for delivering the gift of mobility. Many exciting programs are underway including Ukraine, Hermosillo, MX and Panama in March, 2015. We are growing to better serve all of our stakeholders, please read on to find out how you can get involved!

Growth Brings Change

Keeping the cost of a brand new highly durable wheelchair shipped anywhere in the world as affordable as possible is a careful balancing act. Our mission is to deliver the gift of mobility to those in need and we are proud that we have been able to hold the price constant for the past 6 years. As you can imagine, costs have climbed substantially over that period, especially for transportation. These increases have resulted in a review of our pricing format and this fall we will be introducing a change to the sponsorship cost for our wheelchairs. We are working diligently to retain the lowest possible amount while ensuring that we can continue to deliver high quality brand new wheelchairs. We invite you to contact us with any questions you may have. Thank you for partnering with us! 
We are humbled by the gifts of time and devotion from our partners. With these we are able to make a lifelong change in the lives of people who lack personal mobility in many parts of the globe.

On behalf of our entire team, thank you for your continued passion and generosity,

Christiana Flessner
Executive Director
