Dianna's new wheelchair

Here is Dianna on the day she received her wheelchair from The Red Thread Promise, February 8, 2011.

Her old chair was tattered and worn and much too large for her. It had wheels meant for smooth hospital corridors, a far cry from the bumpy streets and rough terrain of Haiti. The new one is the smallest child-size that we could have manufactured, with large all-terrain wheels specially designed for uneven surfaces. She is able to wheel herself freely through the corridor, something she could not do with her old chair. It's bright red cushions attract the attention of everyone at St. Vincent's, but the smile on this angel's face says it all!

We look forward to delivering many, many more quality wheelchairs to St. Vincent's and others in need of mobility throughout this small Caribbean country that holds a special place in our hearts.
