“You can make it if you follow your dreams!”
Abigail (11, El Salvador) lives with her mother, Mirna, and her little sister, Aceli. In August 2019, Abigail received a Liberty pediatric wheelchair, manufactured by UCP Wheels for Humanity, and properly fitted for her specific physical needs by a UCP Wheels trained physiotherapist and wheelchair technician. Her old wheelchair was not suitable for her and had caused her to develop an ulcer in her leg. In her new chair Abigail feels comfortable and safe, and her mother, Mirna, is grateful knowing that Abigail is no longer in pain.
‘For me and Abigail, it means a lot having a special wheelchair like this, because it is proper for her body and has been well fitted to her.’
