A great day for the disabled at Kuthandiza Osayenda Disability Outreach in Malawi

This was a great day for the disabled people in Malawi. They came from all corners of the country using whatever transport that would take them to Kuthandiza Osayenda Disability Outreach( KODO) to get the much awaited gift of mobility from PET Zambia. Indeed it was a great day physically and spiritually.

Both Reverend Delbert and Sandy Groves from PET Zambia had a busy day praying for the disabled men, women and children who attended the distribution. Parents, government officials, church men and women, and politicians all joined us in receiving this donation officially in Malawi for the first time. It is every body's prayer that God should continue blessing the PET ministry.

Attached are some of the photos taken on the day. I will be giving you all the updates of my follow ups with these disabled people who have benefited from the PET carts, to see how their lives have changed in their various homes.

God bless you all.



PET cart delivery arrives in Lagos, Nigeria through Project Handclasp & USS Swift

This is my picture with the American Navy officers -- Kelly Mosteller and Will Phillips -- who delivered and cleared the PET pallets during our meeting today at the Apapa wharf Lagos, Nigeria. You can see the pallets behind us. The shipment was delivered by the USS Swift.

I am soooo happy and grateful to PET International, US Navy and US Embassy Lagos for your love.

May God continue to bless and keep you all, amen.

Dear Von,

Happy to inform you the PETs arrived and have been distributed. We invited representatives from the ministry of social welfare, anti corruption commission, the paramount chief and the media. Thanks to all of you for making the donation possible. One thing I want to let you know is more PETS are needed. The spare parts are in our storage area. Attached pictures were taken during the distribution. A final report will be sent soon.
