Wheelchair distribution to Guatemala, "Providing mobility to those who have none."

The Wheelchair project 2012-2013: Providing the gift of mobility.

Guatemala City and Antigua, Guatemala are the sites for the third Wheel Chair distribution (Wheelchairs that our Rotarians from Dist. 7570 helped purchase during 2012-2013).  Previous distributions were in the Caribbean and Bogota, Colombia.  PDG Woody Sadler will lead a team of 13 Rotarians and their spouses to Guatemala from the 21-26 August 2014. 240 Wheelchairs will be presented. The team will be hosted by the Club Rotario Guatemala del Este.

The Rotary coordinator, Alejandro Ceballos, from the Rotary Club of Antigua, Guatemala shared that: “We are ready for this experience.  You will enjoy not only the country but the fact that you will be helping very needy peoplehttps://cdncache-a.akamaihd.net/items/it/img/arrow-10x10.png.  Tears will flow, I guarantee, but at the end you will be enriched with one of the best experiences as Rotarians.”

All of the participants are excited about this opportunity to help those in need in our own Western Hemisphere. Perhaps Rotarian Kelly Miller from the Front Royal Rotary Club says it best, “I am really looking forward to meeting our fellow Rotarians and meeting the wonderful peoplehttps://cdncache-a.akamaihd.net/items/it/img/arrow-10x10.png of Guatemala. I feel blessed that we are all in a position to be able to contribute something positive in the lives of those who are not as fortunate as we all are.  My understanding is that Antigua is a beautiful town steeped in a rich history. I have no doubt that we are all in for an incredible stay…”
The fourth and last Wheel Chair distribution will be to Mexico on 8-13 October 2014.  Information will be provided as the plans are finalized.  If you are interested in participating please let PDG Woody know quickly so that you will not miss this opportunity to be a part of "providing the gift of mobility.'
