Great Accomplishments, With Your Help!
World Access Project donates wheelchairs, that are collected and refurbished in the United States, to indigenous people with disabilities of Mexico, one person at a time. As they receive wheelchairs they begin to get out of their houses; as we modify their homes to make them more accessible they learn how to become part of their neighborhood and community.
