A flight of stairs, even a short flight can be a insurmountable barrier to a person being in a wheelchair. Bahrije was in a similar situation, not being able to easily leave her home. People with disabilities understand the old saying “so close, yet so far away”.

We were very happy to be able to remove this barrier for Bahrije by purchasing a suitable ramp for her.

Such a simple solution that can make all the difference to a person with disabilities.

We visited the home of Mr. Ardit whose eleven-year old son has Muscular Dystrophy. The family was having a difficult time in carrying their son up the outside steps to their home. We were able to provide the funds necessary to install an outside lift to safely bring their son into his home and down to the ground.

Ardit guides his son into the lift.

Safely secured the lift is closed.

On the way down!

We visited the home of Remzike (Below) and her family in March 2019. She suffered a broken neck in a fall some years ago and was confined to a wheelchair. She was basically confined to her home unable to go down steps to the street level. She just needed a lift!
After meeting her children and her husband we saw that she was determined to meet her family’s needs and not let her disability be a hindrance. She was just needing a little bit more mobility. We were able to get a lift installed at her home so that she can be more productive.

Remzike looks past the railing which might as well be prison bars. 

Construction of the new lift.

Down on the ground and ready to go!
