Go Nigeria: Wheelchair Presentation

Wheelchair Assembly & Presentation

One of the most touching parts of the trip was the wheelchair presentation.  It’s amazing to see what you can make with a few spare parts and a little creativity.  This ministry was begun by a crippled  man in need of a wheelchair who now oversees the operation called “Beautiful Gate”  which employees Nigerians.  Go Nigeria buys wheelchairs with money donated for their purchase   from City Ministries which is a ministry that they  partner with in a number of operations.  City ministries  is made up of believers who are mostly Nigerian.  Go Nigeria then distributes them to people in need which include  victims of polio, birth defects,  and accidents.

You can see how much some of the Nigerian people needed wheelchairs.
