Wheels for the World

Wheels for the World

A life of mobility is a life full of possibility! Wheelchairs and other mobility aids offer physical assistance; and more importantly Joni and Friends provides the gospel of Jesus Christ – sharing Him by relationship created through the provision of wheelchairs, crutches and walkers. First wheelchairs are collected all across the United States and once restored in one our restoration centers located in prison facilities, are transported overseas to developing countries. And that’s where the possibility for changed life begins for a disabled man, woman or child affected by disability. Each wheelchair is hand selected and fitted by specialist to ensure the proper fit and the life changing gift of mobility.
