Our Mission The Personal Energy Transportation (PET) Project's mission is to provide appropriate mobility for all of God's children in need. We seek to provide mobility first for those in greatest need and with the least resources in poor or underdeveloped countries. PETs are built for use in rough, rural areas where a standard wheelchair won't work or last.

Children Receive Your Help in Kenya & India

Kenyan Boy Has New Freedom
Kenyan Boy Has New Freedom

Dear PET Friends,

In January 2015 we sent out 2 overseas shipping containers which included child PETs. 

Mungeli Christian Hospital in India  #10

Kenya Relief #9   (A total of 199 PETs were sent along with a used wheelchair, walkers and crutches.)

A staff person from PET International was in Kenya for distributions in April for two weeks.  Included in this report is a picture of one of the children who received your gift.  Now he can be more active in his community and school.

Thank you for partnering with us to make a difference in children's lives.  Let's continue to work together to create happier and healthier children around the world.

Sincerely,

Child PETs Go to Central America and Africa

This boy's legs are small compared to his body.

We finished off the 4th quarter with many shipments including to new distribution partners working in Central America and Africa.  In 2014 our production of child/small PETs was #616 of #1,408 total. Your support made these numbers possible. The child version was the majority production of our 3 versions (adult, child and Pull).  I will list the shipments from the 4th quarter:

September 30 child PETs to Rainbow Network in Nicaragua

November 34 child PETs to Hope Haven Int'l in Guatemala

November 10 child PETs for Tanzania

November 20 child PETs to Brother's Brother in PA for shipments to Africa (new partner)

December 30 child PETs to Assemblies of God Church in Nigeria

December child PETs in shipment of #175 total to Junta de Beneficencia de Guayaquil in Ecuador (new partner)

In December we received these pictures from Baptist Medical Center working in Ghana.  You helped this boy have appropriate mobility that will assist him in getting to school and other community gatherings.  Enjoy.

Thank you for your donations in 2014 to help #616 more children in need of rugged mobility.  We look forward to your continued partnership to produce and ship more child PETs in 2015.

Hundreds of PETs Await Shipment to India and Ecuador

We are currently in the middle of preparing for 3 overseas shipments at the same time.  That makes storage of hundreds of PETs difficult.  The 3 shipments are being prepared for Ecuador and 2 for India.  The difficulty is the official paperwork and approval of the receiving country to allow the importation of humanitarian aid duty free and other issues.  One of these shipments is backlogged since May as the original shipment date.  Luckily a friend across the street from our warehouse and production shop has some open space and is allowing us to store PETs there temporarily.  But space is still tight as we continue production each week.  We hope and pray they will be approved/released for shipment very soon.

 

In the meantime, we were able to send 80 child/small PETs mobility devices to Gleaning for the World in VA in August for their worldwide shipments of aid.

 

We appreciate your continued support as we continue to build 5 child PETs a week.  Please keep PET in mind for your year end giving to help children around the world thru your partnership with PET.
