Cesar is 10 years old and was diagnosed with tuberculosis of the bone. This is a disease that typically only young children. It attacks the joints – leaving children nearly immobile for the rest of their lives. Cesar lives with his parents and two siblings on a church compound. He had been mostly home bound because the only way he could leave the house is if his parents carried him.
Through our strategic partners in the region, we were able to provide this boy with one of our favorite items to send, a Personal Energy Transport (P.E.T.) cart. These carts allow handicapped individuals to become mobile again. These carts are sturdy, durable and adjustable which will allow Cesar to be empowered and be self-sufficient as an adult. It is truly life-changing.
We brought the PET to Cesar at their hometown in Silay City [Phillipines]. When he saw and rode it, he was so glad and we can see in him that he is happy to have that kind of blessing from the Lord. God is so good and HE really provides! His mother is very thankful that her son can now go out alone and go around to their church compound. According to their Pastor Jun and his wife Dindin Gaston, the PET vehicle for Cesar is very useful for him. They thank God for using you to be a blessing for them and us as well. Thank you for your partnership.”
