Wheels For The World

How Wheels for the World works

Providing wheelchairs to people who need them around the world involves four phases of ministry: collection, transportation, restoration, and distribution. Our Chair Corps team is a nationwide network of volunteers that collect used, but restorable, wheelchairs. The wheelchairs are transported to restoration shops located in our nation’s correctional facilities, where inmates restore them to their original usefulness. Finally, the wheelchairs are shipped to distribution sites worldwide. There, our outreach teams make sure each recipient is carefully fitted to a wheelchair that meets their individual needs.
