A Mother's Faith is Strengthened

Maria and her 5-year-old daughter, Yessica, needed a miracle when they arrived at our Wheels for the World outreach in El Salvador. Yessica was born with hydrocephalous and spina bifida, and she desperately needed a wheelchair.

Feeling hopeless and exhausted, Maria knew she could never afford a wheelchair for her daughter. But that afternoon, a miracle happened… all because of your prayers and generosity! Maria watched as our volunteer Wheels physical therapists and mechanics tenderly and perfectly fit Yessica into her very own wheelchair. Maria was moved with emotions when she saw the joy and smile come across her daughter’s face! “With this wheelchair, I can now take Yessica to school. She will learn, and be with kids her age. Also, she’ll move around the house easier and can sit up straight in a wheelchair.”

Because Yessica did not have a wheelchair, she got sores on her legs from sitting in the wrong position for hours every day. Maria added, “Thank you for the wheelchair. My family is poor, and we do not have the money to buy one for Yessica. Thank you for giving my daughter the opportunity to have a better life. May God bless you… even more than what you’ve given us.” Because of your faithfulness, Yessica and her family have much to smile about and praise God for today.
