global mobility

Global Mobility is providing free wheelchairs to persons with disabilities around the world. Outreach extends to developing nations in need and domestically as well.

Global Mobility partnerships include the Shriners Hospital for Children, the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, convalescent homes, churches and local missions — world partners include Refugio de Esperanza/ Hope Haven International (Guatemala), the Da Nang Rehabilitation Hospital (Vietnam), Eldoret National Hospital (Kenya), PNG Assembly of Disabled Persons (PNG ADP) (Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands), and Ruedas para Humanidad (Mexico), as well as Operation USA, and Project Handclasp, a humanitarian program of the U. S. Navy.

In 1996, David Richard founded Wheels for Humanity. Under his leadership that organization distributed and individually seated over 65,000 people with wheelchairs and other ambulatory aid in over 70 countries, including Guatemala, Mexico, Haiti, Mongolia, Ukraine, Vietnam, Jordan, and Zimbabwe.
