If you could change the life of a disabled child who is isolated and overlooked, would you do it? Joni and Friends invites you to join us and live out your faith.

These children are excluded from life in the outside world because they have no way of moving around. With a wheelchair, they can attend school and church and become part of their communities and villages.

We will be sending a team to help fit and distribute wheel chairs for those affected by disability while working alongside a local church.
