We provide free wheelchairs, mobility equipment, and therapy services to families in need in Mexico. We believe in cross-cultural collaboration and sharing therapeutic knowledge to support the most sustainable, mobile, communities for people with disabilities in need.
Working Across Borders
We don't just give a person a wheelchair, we give the whole family the education to safely use it and a facility to maintain it for years to come.
Therapy Services Abroad
We collaborate with Universities to provide International Fieldwork Internships for Occupational Therapy Students, and other students abroad. Check out a student video from our recent collaboration with California State University - Dominguez Hills.
We are proud to collaborate with Padres y Compadres, and other community service organizations in Mexico to engage in cross-cultural training and community outreach programs. We provide continuing education opportunities for therapists and students. We engage in tele-therapy to engage both Mexican and US therapists in treatment planning and research based client care. We lead seminars on safe client transfers, caregiver body mechanics, and the importance of play in development.
Community Outreach and Education
Many families in Mexico have difficulty gaining access to mobility equipment like wheelchairs, crutches, canes, shower seats and more. We collect donated equipment in the USA, ship it to our refurbishing center in Mazatlan, and adjust the equipment for people in need; free of charge. We provide custom seating options, as best we can with donated parts. We educate families and the community of the importance of proper seating, positioning, skin care, and how to safely navigate it in the community.
Over the past 12 years, we have donated equipment to over 5,200 families in need with the help of donors and a small volunteer staff.
If you are in WA state, please contact us to donate equipment!
