In just 5 years, 2000 colored carts have been built from scratch by a faithful group of volunteers. This means there will now be 2000 people -precious disables, outcast and struggling people –who no longer have to crawl or be carried.
Some volunteers from PET Leighton recently had the opportunity to travel to Haiti to help distribute carts. Read of few of their stories and see who received the chance of mobility!
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! For a donation under $300, 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 50,000 PETs have been distributed worldwide. Watch for the blue/green carts produced by our volunteers in Leighton.
