PET MO-Columbia, Inc.

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.

Abandoned Kenyan Children Receive Mobility

Kenyan Abandoned Children Receive Mobiltiy Aug2013
Kenyan Abandoned Children Receive Mobiltiy Aug2013

A lot has happened in the last quarter including receiving great pictures of children receiving PETs in Kenya.  We have ramped up child PET production to 15 a week.  In September a MO family drove a truck and trailer to OH to pick up #465 steel, rear frames painted and ready to use in assembly from volunteers there.   It's a 2 day trip.  We cover travel expense and they donate their time.

August email report (Notice 2 blue,
child PETs in picture made at our shop.):

“These are all abandoned
children.  These were taken by Dr. Doris
Phillips at Kisoto where all the children have mobility disorders, Cerebral
Palsy, Hydrocephalus and convulsive disorders.  In addition to the carts,
we left them with medications to prevent seizures and worms.  This is in a
tiny remote area. There is another school for older children with similar
mobility issues.

July 2013 shipped 20 child PETs for Lions Club Dist 324 B4 in India.

August 2013 shipped 20 child PETs to MedShare in GA for their worldwide shipments.

August 2013 shipped 40 child PETs to Gleaning for the World for their worldwide shipments.

September 2013 shipped 10 child PETs for the Dominican Republic.

October 2013 we plan to ship 20 child PETs Phillippines thru Universal Heart, first time partner.

At $250 each to buy the off the shelf supplies, run the warehouse and pay for shipping, it takes a lot of funding to make these shipments become a reality.  With more gifts, we could build more to meet demand.  Thank you for all your generosity and care for those children who need mobility around the world.

Sincerely,

Kathy Maynard, PET MO-Columbia

Child PETs Go Worldwide

Dear PET Friends,

Because of recent higher requests for child size PETs, we are now regularly producing 6 a week.  That is double the number produced the past several years.  Below is a listing of child PET shipments this spring:

April #32 to CBN Afrique for Chad

April #10 to Hope Haven International for Guatemala

May #30 to MedWish for their worldwide shipments

June #20 to Orphan Grain Train for their worldwide shipments

For a total of #92!

As you can read, we are getting requests for child size PETs from different NGOs who will ship them to children most in need of rugged mobility in various countries.  We appreciate your past support.  We hope you will continue to help us in our mobility mission and possibly increase your support so that we can continue building 6 child PETs a week.

Sincerely,

Apr 19, 2013

February 15, 2013   4 child PETs to the Donohue Corp. in CT for Kenya

For a total shipped of 56 child PETs to more children in need of mobility.  We appreciate your continued interest and support of our mission.

Sincerely,
