They're here!! Earlier this week the shipment containing over 300 wheelchairs and other similar medical devices that left Canada mid-June, arrived! It has now cleared customs and is on its way, with the help of the Mongolian National Handicapped Association, to help literally hundreds of handicapped people in Mongolia! This unexpected and unlooked for donation is changing hundreds of lives - and we're thrilled to be a part of it!
How this came about....
Just a few last thoughts...
This has been one of those things in life that comes without warning. Our work with the children and families at the garbage dump has brought me into many homes where handicapped people suffer in isolation. To have been able to make this connection between the donors and those in need across Mongolia has truly been an honour and I am grateful for the opportunity. I love that our work in Mongolia meant that someone out there knew about us and was able to bring our name forward as a partner for these kinds of shipments.
Future updates and details of some of the 300+ stories that this distribution will result in will be posted here as the stories unfold and while this may well be the only such shipment that we are ever able to coordinate and make happen, I am so happy to have been able to be apart of the chain that is making such a HUGE difference ...one chair at a time.
