Hope-for-the-Handicapped

In some cultures, disabled children and adults are neglected and pushed aside. Some suffer in deplorable conditions without anyone to love and care for them. Hope-for-the-Handicapped supplies food, health kits, and other aid to disabled individuals, mental institutions, and homes for the elderly and handicapped. The program operates in Liberia, Kenya, Israel, the Palestinian territories, and other places.

Wheelchairs: Many handicapped people in impoverished countries have little choice but to crawl on their hands and knees. Some of them wear flip-flops or other things on their hands for a bit of protection. While wheelchairs may seem like a small gift, they are often life-changing for a handicapped child or adult. They now have a way to get out and interact with the people around them. Supporters’ funds enable us to purchase wheelchairs in large quantities for those in need.
