In 2006, I took part in an opportunity of a lifetime! I traveled along side ROC Wheels to Mali, Africa where we distributed wheelchairs and medical supplies to poverty-stricken children suffering from cerebral palsy, as well as other physical disabilities. The experience was very heart wrenching in that it instantly improved the lives of countless children and their families throughout the region. I am so thankful for the opportunity and I look forward to taking part in future distributions.
ROC Wheels' main objective is to provide children in need in developing countries with wheel chairs to live their lives to the fullest. Every child dreams, some children just need a little extra help to obtain their dreams. The wheel chairs ROC Wheels supplies are just the tools these children need in order to dream big, live their lives to the fullest, and share their dreams with the rest of the world. Additionally, ROC Wheels provides the foundation to help other caring children get involved through YEWTHS ROC! The YEWTHS ROC program enables local children to help build the wheel chairs for the youths in need. YEWTH ROC also provides opportunities for children to get involved by making homemade items that help fund the wheel chairs. The only thing more precious in this world than allowing a child to live out their dream, is allowing children to live out their dreams together. ROC Wheels provides this opportunity!
