What is a PET?
PETs are sturdy hand-cranked vehicles given freely to the recipient. The PET is a wheelchair that goes where wheelchairs can’t go! More than 50,000 PETs have been distributed worldwide…through volunteers and Mercy in Motion.
Who needs a PET?
Millions of people in this world are in desperate need of mobility because of landmines, polio and other diseases, birth defects, and amputations. It is a life-changing event to go from dragging oneself in the dirt and mud to having three wheels to go wherever one wants to go! For a donation under $300, we can build and ship one PET vehicle. The gift of a PET is at no cost to the recipient….it is the Gift of Mobility.
