PET Mobility Project’s partner Mobility Sierra Leone rebuilds and refurbishes dead and dying PETs. Monika’s 8 year old PET has been updated and ready for 8 more years. Zoom in on the “before” photo for better view of tires and on both photos for view of child riding in back. See http://giftofmobility.wordpress.com/?s=sierra+leone for several more stories of repairs.
Thanks to your gifts, we were able to coordinate this repair effort in Sierra Leone. The effort included sending replacement parts and help with travel expenses in country. This organization is dedicated to helping persons with mobility.
