Mission Statement

Our Mission is to provide the transforming gift of mobility to people with disabilities in developing nations as motivated by Jesus Christ. Our Vision Free Wheelchair Mission will be a leading provider of mobility, transforming the lives of 1,212,000 people with physical disabilities by the end of 2020. With an estimated 100 million people around the world today in need of a wheelchair without the means to get one, FWM strives to distribute over 100,000 chairs annually, and continues to pursue our goal to distribute 1 million chairs by the end of 2017. Free Wheelchair Mission continues its focus and commitment on becoming a leading provider of mobility in developing nations, but beyond placing recipients in a chair, FWM is bringing transformation that opens doors to education, employment opportunities and community that these individuals only dreamed of before receiving the gift of mobility.

It's a wonderful mission and opportunity to help out locally with great volunteers. They also give you lots of snacks!
