Review for David Fellers Healing Art Foundation, Los Alamos, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This year we met Amy, a darling 7 year old. Amy is blind and sick, she weighs only 18 pounds. Children like Amy have no hope for a future without the support of caring people like you! In the past 5 years The David Fellers Healing Art Foundation has helped over 200 hundred disabled people in Nicaragua. There are hundreds more waiting to receive wheelchairs, prosthetics and life saving medicine. Please help us improve our world one person at a time. Donate now to the David Fellers Healing Art Foundation: http://healingartfoundation.org/page8/donate.html. 99% of the funds we raise go directly to disabled people desperately in need of help!

Review for David Fellers Healing Art Foundation, Los Alamos, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

David Fellers was born with Cerebral Palsy but being severely disabled never stopped him from enjoying life. His enthusiasm knew no bounds and he was an inspiration to all who knew him. When he passed away two years ago at the age of 30, a non profit in his name was created. In the past year The David Fellers Healing Art Foundation has donated 22 wheelchairs and 5 prosthetic legs to people who would other-wise not have them. The foundation is currently working in Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua, the second poorest country in the Western Hemisphere next to Haiti. In this area we discovered children with disabilities similar to David who had no wheelchairs or any other equipment. David was deaf and his only physical ability was smiling. In poverty stricken areas of the world, such as Puerto Cabezas with an 80% unemployment rate, people like David are left to lie in the same place day after day with nothing to do. It was the most amazing experience ever to be able to bring wheelchairs to these special children. We also equiped older people who were stuck in bed having survived debilitating strokes or accidents. Puerto Cabezas has a high number of young men paralized from diving too deep for lobsters. When they get the bends they don't get to a decompression chamber in time which results in permanent nerve damage.
