Because of your gift, more children will be able to get to school, house of worship, visit relatives, interact with other children and more.  Here are recent shipments made possible by your generosity:

September 2016  AHMEN in Honduras - 6 small carts

November 2016   Washington Overseas Mission/WOM in Honduras - 2 small carts

December 2016   Kenya Relief - 48 small carts

This little girl is one of many who received a small cart thru Kenya Relief in 2015.  We are glad to supply more carts to these reliable distribution partners who have ongoing work in these countries of need.

Thank you for your support in 2016. We look forward to your continuing partnership in 2017.  Let's send more small carts to children in need.

Margalena in Guatemala is now independent thanks to your support.  Our friends, Agape in Action, posted a short video and message on their Facebook account.  (This cart was actually built at our Columbia, MO production shop.)  Please view and enjoy.

Facebook: “….we were able to donate a cart to Margalena in Chitatul, Quiché Guatemala! She is 8 and for the first time in her life she will be able to move independently!”

Other shipments include

July 2016 40 small carts to MedShare's warehouse in CA for their worldwide ministry.

Please continue to partner with us to help more Margalenas of our world.

Great news from Kenya.  Thanks to your great support and care, another child can get to school.  Read Tobias' story from Kenya:

“Tobias is happy young boy. He is using his CHILD PET CART; Columbia MO 2014 (production tag

information). He is 12 years old and attending school. The picture above is of Tobias at his home.

I met Tobias in a company of his friends from school going for lunch. He is very happy! He enjoys the company of his

friends and plays with them during games not like before receiving PET. Below is Tobias and friends.

I’ll arrange to visit Tobias in school and interview him and also hear from his teachers about PET cart. The mobility has

helped him access his education.



In addition these shipments were loaded out:

May 2016  21  World Vision warehouse in PA

May 2016  33  Junta de Beneficencia de Guaya… in ECUADOR

June 2016   5   Love A Child for Haiti

June 2016  20  Haiti

Please help us build and ship more child PET carts for those in need of rugged mobility.  We appreciate your partnership.

Helping others be independent,

Dear PET Friends,

With your dedicated giving, PET was able to ship out #134 child PET mobility devices so far this year.   Can you help us continue to fill orders from reliable and caring distribution partners like those listed below?

Shipments at

January 12, 2016   Jamaica thru N Kansas City Medical & Dental Team 1 child

January 18, 2016   Hope Clinic in Guinea 1 child

February 24, 2016  AHMEN in AL for Honduras 2 child

February 19, 2016  MedShare in CA for worldwide 80 child

March 23, 2016       Orphan Grain Train in NE for worldwide 50 child

MedShare sent a first quarter report of where they shipped our PETs to.  Here is the list for the child size:

5 to CRAIDI in Democratic Republic of Congo

2 to Benson Hospital in Liberia

5 to Zomba Central Hospital in Malawi

We are fully staffed with volunteers to make PET specific parts, do assembly, prepare for shipping and loading orders.  If you could help with another gift, that would really help us buy more chain, screws, tires, etc

We appreciate your consideration and support.

Partnering together we are off to a great start in 2016.  Lives bloom thru PET.

Dear PET Friends,

With your continued giving, PET was able to fill 8 orders of child PET mobility devices last fall.   We had an increased number of child orders come in, and we recently changed the assembly volunteers to all child PETs into 2016.  Only the 9th order shipped did not include a child PET.  These are the shipments from the end of the year since our last report.

Shipments at

November 3, 2015 Ivory Coast thru 1040i in OK 16 child

November 13, 2015 Hope Haven Intl in IA for Guatemala and worldwide shipments 40 child

December 4, 2015 Haiti & Dominican Republic 10 child

December 4, 2015 Honduras via Baptist Medical Dental Mission in MS 5 Child

December 22, 2015 48 Uganda via Medical Mission in AL 21 adult, 20 child

December 16, 2015 World Vision – CO warehouse for worldwide 20 child

We are currently building all child PETs at the assembly station until the front forks (for over the wheel) run out.  More forks are at our friend's business waiting for a free powder coat finish.  If you could help with another gift, that would really help us buy more forks, tires, etc

We appreciate your consideration and support.

Happy New Year!  Partnering together we are off to a great start in 2016.
