Words for Wheels
"Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says." James 1:22
Serving in the Joni and Friends' Christian Institute on Disability we use words and language to communicate the needs of those affected by disability and Jesus' call to minister to them. We now have a chance to make a different kind of impact and we'd like to invite you to join us!
In developing countries, it’s common for disabled adults and children to live isolated in their homes, with no access to education, work, or their community. Their families often live in impoverished conditions – there is simply no money for a wheelchair.
With your help we can change this! We're asking you to join us in providing wheelchairs and the Gospel message through Joni and Friends. Together, we will send wheelchairs to impoverished communities in developing countries around the world. Each wheelchair is carefully fitted by occupational and physical therapists to meet the unique needs of each recipient. With a wheelchair, children can attend school; adults can obtain employment, attend church, and be a part of their community! Each recipient also hears the Gospel message, and is connected with the support of a local church. Their lives are changed!
