In this space I talk a lot about people who have done amazing things for someone else. But this story is about an engineer who has affected the lives of more than a million people. His name is Don Schoendorfer and he was on a trip to Morocco when he saw a woman drag herself by her hands across a dirt road as she dodged traffic. 

That vision led him to develop an inexpensive but durable wheelchair that he hoped would change the lives of people like her. Since he began, his Free Wheelchair Mission (FWM) has given away almost a million wheelchairs. In 2015 alone, FWM gave away 74,000+ wheelchairs in 37 countries.
This young man is one of those recipients. His name is Soun and he lives in Roarng Leu Village in Cambodia. Since 2006, when he fell and suffered a spinal cord injury, he has been unable to work. As in the case of most paralyzed people, he suffered from depression and sadness because he could not care for his wife and children. Said Soun, “I prayed to God for a wheelchair,” prayers that were answered when he received a GEN_1 wheelchair through FWM’s partner, CBN Cambodia.

Whenever FWM’s wheelchairs are distributed, crowds come out to see what is happening. Villagers are incredulous to see care being shown to the least among them. No longer dirty, stuck at home and left out of society, the wheelchair recipients come alive again and are always struck with awe and gratitude and the new life they have been given.

Free Wheelchair Mission has identified its passion and concentrated its efforts on changing the lives of the world’s disabled poor, one person at a time. It is a move Jim and I strongly promoted in our book, World Changing Generosity. Each of us has the opportunity to look at a hurting world and to identify our own passions. 

What moves the needle with you? Do you care about childhood diseases, clean water efforts, teaching agricultural methods, ending homelessness, or any of the other needs in the world? Find your passion, locate, learn about, and support those charitable efforts that you care most about. You will be doing the good in the world you have always wanted to do.

It's such a nice and inspiring stuff. For someone who is on wheel chair the best thing can be walking with his/her own legs.

It's always very inspiring to hear stories about people who are helping other people. Generosity is contagious. Whenever we see someone helping people, we want to know how we can also help in our small way. Keep posting stories like this. I am sure it will move millions.

It would be nice if there will be an organization that can purchase or rent out crutches and wheelchairs to those who need it all over the world. All they need to do is to collect those who are just collecting dust on several households. Some don't really need it on a permanent basis. They are just recuperating from operation and will only need it for a few months. Yet, very few have access to it. It makes their rehabilitation period longer because they get depressed.

A debt of gratitude is in order for sharing such a pleasant and worth stuff. It's genuinely a motivation for all the general population having same issue of inabilities. Be that as it may, the better thought is an exchange through Essay writing services which has such a large number of individuals need to discuss inabilities. The thing is force seats have altered the universe of such individuals.
