This Wheels for the World team was our largest yet and it was so good to meet some new team members and also to welcome back familiar faces, several returning for their third visit. They worked tirelessly. Well to be honest as it was at the end of their trip they were already quite tired but so utterly professional, cheerful and caring.
As ever there were some very complex cases- one child had to be sent away to await another year’s distribution as we didn’t have a wheelchair which could be properly adapted.
However as in previous years we found that some of the more specialist chairs were just right for certain clients, a scenario which always has a very special sense of providence. We served all our visitors lunch and they were able to receive counselling and prayer if they so wished.
There were many tears but many more smiles and we are deeply thankful to have been able to play our part in helping to meet the needs of a very marginalised group of people.
Without doubt, hope prevails. As one of the members of the CBR Board of Trustees said:
