Alejandro and his parents

When Alejandro was born with a disability, his parents fell to their knees in despair. In their country of Cuba, poverty presses down hard and medical help is scarce. Wheelchairs for a child like Alejandro are rare – scarcely available and impossible to afford. Thanks to you, the family came face-to-face with God’s love this year when Alejandro received a beautiful new Joni and Friends pediatric wheelchair! “I am crying tears of joy because my son is so happy and comfortable,” said Alejandro’s father, Yanel. “It’s such a joy to see him have his own place in the world for the first time.” As Alejandro’s parents rejoiced over the gift you sent, local pastors prayed with them and shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It was the best news Alejandro’s they had ever heard! Today, through your gift of a wheelchair, God has broken this family’s isolation and despair and replaced it with joyous, new life in Christ!

It's always an immense pleasure to gift something needful to the needy on the right time. Hope Alejandro was so lucky and blessed to get the gift.

I absolutely love this program. We donate our old wheelchairs each time we get a new one. Thank you and your whole team for fulfilling this need. Thank you for all you do. God bless you and this ministry!
