PETs help the handicapped

PETs help the handicapped

Our recipient, Sandra with Help for Haiti took several types of PETs (all terrain wheelchairs) donated by Orphan Grain Train to the Handicapped Association of MASSAIDE. In Haiti, parents must carry their handicapped children around if they have no wheelchair or wagons. If fortunate enough to have a wheelchair, they are still difficult to maneuver on the unpaved streets and terrains. In the photo, you can see the joy on this precious girls face! Prior to the PET wagon, her mother had to carry her everywhere. Her mother came to Sandra and looked deep into her eyes and said: THANK YOU. The PET changed her life. To be able to pull the heavy teen around vs. having to carry her around is a miracle.
