DAVID FELLERS HEALING ART FOUNDATION
July 18, 2010
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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
In Nicaragua the David Fellers Healing Art Foundation provided 5 prosthetic legs and 22 wheelchairs to disabled people in need. I personally met each one of these people and experienced the amazing opportunity to share in their joy.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Volunteer & I organized fund-raising events, ordered wheelchairs and traveled to Puerto Cabezas to see that the wheelchairs went to the people who needed them.
