Operation Blessing International is bringing the gift of mobility to Haitians with disabilities.
Operation Blessing has partnered with Free Wheelchair Mission, a humanitarian aid organization. More than 550 unassembled wheelchairs have been shipped to the capital city of Port au Prince.
Volunteers from Operation Blessing and the Free Wheelchair Mission assembled the chairs and delivered them to individual recipients and area hospitals.
The wheelchairs are very affordable at only $65 each and are easy to ship. They have also been delivered to people who need them in 12 other countries.
