Ydi on Mobility Cart
Ydi, is one of 4 precious siblings who live without an adult present in a red mud hut. The oldest sibling, sister Fausia, is only 15. Sadly, both parents have chosen to abandon their children in order to make a life with their new families and partners. Ydi and his siblings live without adult supervision, relying on the generosity of neighbors to be fed enough to survive.

Ydi’s plight came to the attention of Erin Tyson in June while participating in a mission trip with Come Away Missions of Phenix City.

Erin contacted Mobility Worldwide, hoping to obtain a Mobility Cart for the child.

Thankfully, because of donors and volunteers like you, who desire to share the love of Christ, there was a Cart available that could be given to take Ydi out of the dirt.

Come Away Missions team members worked in the Mobility Worldwide workshop, learning to assemble Ydi’s Cart in the field.

The Cart was safely packed in suitcases and checked by the airlines on which the team traveled to Rwanda on July 18th.

Receiving his Mobility Cart on July 23rd, Ydi was so happy!

“Now I can go to school and play with my friends.”
