Mission:
Push International works to provide sustainable, mobile, communities for people with disabilities in need in Mexico. Push International collects new and used mobility and therapy equipment in the USA, refurbishes, redistributes and personally adjusts each and every piece of equipment to benefit people who do not have access to these services. Push shares a campus in Mazatlan, Mexico with Padres y Compadres. Together we have a wheelchair repair and refurbishing shop staffed all year round to provide sustainable services, adjustments and maintenance to the equipment we deliver.
Results:
Over the last 5 years, Push International has welcomed over 24 teams of volunteers from the USA, Canada and Guam to our facility in Mexico. Together we have distributed over 2,000 pieces of mobility equipment to people with disabilities in need. We have employed people with disabilities, provided countless therapy interventions and home programs, modified people's homes to increase wheelchair accessibility and much much more!
