Amazing nonprofit where everyone except one person volunteers their time so that almost 100% of the money raised goes to the children they serve.
ROC Wheels does wonderful work building wheel chairs for children least served in developing countries. They provide mobility with well designed wheel chairs that are assembled on site. ROC Wheels partners with a men's prison to build the chairs, providing work and skill building while the men serve time. ROC Wheels also have youth groups who help deliver and assemble their wheel chairs in the villages where the children live. I have donated to ROC Wheels for over 3 years and am very glad I found them online.
I found ROC Wheels when I was trying to find contact information for my old friends, Wayne and Lee Hanson, the founders. What a nice surprise! Fantastic progress being made in their wheel chairs providing access, dignity and mobility to the least abled children in the world. I like their website because I can easily find out what they do. I make annual donations and am glad to hear from them. Bravo for ROC Wheels!
I went with ROC to Mexico and distributed 53 Wheelchairs. It was a truly meaningful experience. Several people came to know the Lord and the trip was eye opening to another culture. The group of us teenagers grew much closer to each other and with God. The trip was very well planned and I never felt unsafe. ROC wheels truley changes lives of children and parents alike, a great investment of my time and money!
ROC is an amazing organization to be involved with. The service they provide to physically challenged children in need throughout the world is unparalleled. The church and school wheelchair build programs are such a great learning experience for the students and volunteers. It is a huge blessing to be a part of such a great organization and be able to work with local kids to bring joy and mobility to children of the world.
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!
