Scattered all throughout Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, we find an overlooked and unreached group of people - the physically handicapped. Many of these people are crawling on the ground, being treated like animals as they are always looking up and begging. There are thousands of them.
Our desire is to help them get jobs, get bikes they can get around on, to feel good about themselves, and ultimately through all this share the love of Jesus with them. Here's how you can help us:
PROVIDE HAND PEDALED BIKES
Buy a three wheeled, hand pedaled handicap bike for $400. This will allow one person to feel like a person as they look you in the eye and they can now go anywhere they need to go.
PROVIDE EMPLOYMENT & FOOD
Red Cross has given the Handicap Association in Sector 30 three buildings that they can use to raise meat chickens, layers for eggs, sheep and pigs. This will help employ 50 physically disabled people and bring in income.
PROVIDE A PLACE FOR THE PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED TO EAT
The Mayor has given a piece of land to the association to start a restaurant for the physically disabled. This will provide employment as well as give them a place to go eat since the physically disabled are not allowed in most restaurants. To create a physically disabled accessible restaurant the cost would be approximately $10,000.
Help change a life today, and engage with us in impacting the physically disabled people of Burkina Faso.
