PUSH INTERNATIONAL
January 15, 2012

Push International is an organization that provides wheelchairs for people lacking mobility in their community. This trip took us to Mazatlan, Mexico where we fitted over 80 wheelchairs to specific people and left 120+ chairs to be given out at later dates. These donated chairs are provided by the generous donors to Push International - mostly in the states. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to go on the trip, experience the local culture, gain a better understanding of the trials and strengths of the local people, and develop a fire/need to go back.
