March 18, 2011

The excitement and joy we see on a child's face when they ride in their own wheelchair for the first time in their life is indescribable!
At this time we are working in the isolated North Atlantic Coast of Nicaragua. There is no school available for the special needs children in this area. Due to the poverty and health conditions in this region there are many children with disabilities caused by high fevers that went untreated, resulting in deafness, blindness and a variety of mobility disorders.
Another big area of concern is there are over 400 disabled lobster divers who were paralyzed as a result of decompression sickness. The lobster industry hired them, gave them diving equipment and failed to teach them safe diving techniques. Many of them are dying because of untreated pressure sores.

The Great!
