Children with disabilities are often stigmatized in Rwanda, Africa. This stigmatization, along with lack of mobility, often prevents children from attending school and interacting with their peers. There’s an estimated 2,500 to 3,000 disabled children under 18 who have no laws to protect or assist them.
With your generous donations and constant support, the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation® has assisted Angel Rider with providing wheelchairs to disabled children, ages ranging 5–18. These wheelchairs are specifically designed for rough terrain—without sidewalks or paved roads. Since 2015, Angel Rider has given hundreds of wheelchairs to children in need.
What an incredible cause we’re engaged in together! We’re empowering positive, sustainable change in the lives of these children in Africa.
