Helping Lame To Walk: A Miracle of Love

Lame Man Walks

Lame Man Walks

When Jesus Christ was on the earth, He often ‘made the lame to walk’. Today, that miracle continues as The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints distributes wheelchairs to the needy around the world.

In developing nations, millions must crawl, scoot or pull themselves along the ground all of their lives. They cannot go to school, and businesses will not hire them. humanitarian-wheelchair

However, that is changing. Leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints realized that a wheelchair donation not only transforms the life of an individual, but also gives support to a whole family, and improves an entire community. For the past seven years church employees have worked with manufacturers in China and India. After the chairs are made, the church works with organizations that help the disabled to ship and distribute them in nearly 100 countries. wheelchair-joy

LDS Humanitarian Services, working in partnership with local organizations that serve the disabled, distributes about 40,000 wheelchairs each year. Those who have witnessed a disabled person receiving a wheelchair for the first time report that the joy and tears of gratitude shown by the recipient are often overwhelming.

This touching video shares some of those moments:
