From New Hampshire, with love

Although we conduct March wheelchair clinics in Peru, the preparations take place long before we set foot in the country.

Our colleagues in Peru have sent evaluations with photos and measurements over the last month. And for many months, volunteers here in the United States have collected equipment to be sent for use in Peru. That collection effort culminated today in a full Saturday of packing at the home of Sammie Wakefield (longtime volunteer) in Moultonborough, New Hampshire.

Mary Jo Wagner (2010/2011 Peru team), her friend Kathy, and Patty McTigue (2010 Peru team) gathered there to pack 51 boxes of wheelchair seating components and specialty items! These materials will find new life with new owners in March 2012. Thank you Sammie, Mary Jo, Kathy and Patty! Your help is invaluable.

    We must not forget Dick my husband who tolerates year round additional stuff being collected in the house. Yesterday he went out to Subway to get sandwiches to feed us then helped tape boxes all afternoon. He also loaded and will load his truck until we get them all moved to the shipping dock in Manchester. Yesterday’s work was fun with so much good help.
