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.

Kenyan boy doesn't have to crawl to school 2 miles

Kenya GAiN Mission Hospital report
Kenya GAiN Mission Hospital report

Our faithful distribution partner sent us another wonderful report; this time from Kenya.  We have sent GAiN, Global Aid Network, shipments for 3 years.  They send mission goods around the world.  PET is a part of that.  This report was passed along from a mission hospital who is distributing PETs as patients come to the hospital.

“Hi.  Thanks for be part of this young boy blessing he is 12 yrs old in class 3, who has been crawling for 2 miles to school every day, he is a hard working boy with congenital anomalies on his lower extremity. He is
very grateful for the PET wheelchair he could now go to school with ease.  Solomon Rop”  July 2011 distribution

 

In December 2011 we sent 15 more child PETs (all we had ready to go) to resupply MedShare in GA.  They will continue to offer to their worldwide agencies.  PETs are included with their recycled medical supplies.

We appreciate your interest and support.

Sincerely, Kathy Maynard, PET MO-Columbia

Children in India and Sudan will receive PETs.

This summer we sent 3 child size PETs to our partners in Southern Sudan, Alaska Sudan Medical Project.  We received a video of their work there in which they highlighted distributing PETs from our last shipment to them.  An excerpt of that report was included in our new DVD called "Where there's a Wheel there's a Way".  You can go to our home page at www.giftofmobility.org and click on the Wheels YouTube video link. 

We also sent another shipment to Lions Clubs in India.  We included 13 child size at their request.

We appreciate your support to provide child size PET mobility devices.

More Mobility on the Way for Children

We will update our progress by telling of the shipments of child size PET mobility devices we have shipped to our partners.

May 25, 2011 - 8 child size to GAiN (Global Aid Network's worldwide mission)

June 27, 2011 - 12 child size to OGT (Orphan Grain Train's worldwide mission)

August 1, 2011 - 15 child size to Gleaning for the World's worldwide mission

The child PETs are combined with adult crank and Pull versions to fill a 53' semi trailer.  With regular giving, we have been able to fill requests within a month.  All three of these NGOs have gotten multiple shipments of PETs in recent years and work with agencies around the world.  We are glad to partner with these reliable 501c3/non-profits to help those most in need.
