Who needs a PET?
Millions of people in this world are in desperate need of mobility because of landmines, polio and other diseases, birth defects, and amputations. It is a life-changing event to go from dragging oneself in the dirt and mud to having three wheels to go wherever one wants to go! With a $250 donation we can build and ship one PET vehicle. The gift of a PET is at no cost to the recipient….it is the Gift of Mobility.
PETs are sturdy hand-cranked vehicles given freely to the recipient. The PET is a wheelchair that goes where wheelchairs can’t go! More than 30,000 PETs have been distributed in over 90 countries.
