INCLUSION 

Across the world, every day, millions of moms put their own needs aside to make sure that their children’s needs come first. In celebration of all those amazing moms this Mother's Day, we bring you the story of Murni, whose daughter Revi has spina bifida. For years, Murni had no choice but to carry her growing daughter everywhere. It was an exhausting situation. That is until the day Revi received an appropriately-fitted pediatric wheelchair from UCP Wheels for Humanity. Watch the video and see how the gift of mobility transformed both of their lives. 

We're also delighted to bring you a letter from our new Executive Director, David Murphy, plus the opportunity to buy tickets or sponsor our annual Wheels in Motion Gala. Click on the link below to enjoy a fun-filled evening of dancing, live and silent auctions and a special guest!
"Now I know that her future is bright!" 
There are so many more children and their moms like Revi and Murni that need our help. $250 buys a wheelchair that can transform not just the life of the user, but those that care for them. $100 buys a wheelchair modification kit that enables proper fitting, and $25.00 provides two comfort cushions that can help the wheelchair user sit better, and avoid pressure sores.
Greetings from our new Executive Director

Dear Friends of UCP Wheels,

I am honored and delighted to introduce myself as UCP Wheels’ new Executive Director. As a longtime Director of international NGOs, working with vulnerable populations in many low and middle income countries, I have had first hand opportunities to see the critical impact that impaired mobility has on health outcomes and poverty rates. Lack of access to appropriate wheelchairs and support services robs not just individuals of their right to education and employment, but also diminishes the lives of their families and communities. That is why I am so committed to UCP Wheels mission to promote greater inclusion for people with disabilities globally, through mobility, therapy, advocacy and empowerment.

I am happy to say that my job is made much easier by the support of our committed Board of Directors, and of a talented and dedicated team here at our head office, and in our regional offices in El Salvador, Indonesia and Ukraine. And I look forward to continuing this important work with you - our loyal supporters - who, through your generous donations, help us advance our mission every day. Between us, we will bring the gift of mobility to even greater numbers of people around the world!

With gratitude, 

David Murphy
