A Gift of Mobility...The Gift of Hope

Bethany has been a strong supporter of Mobility Worldwide through volunteering, and memers serving on the board of directors, for several years.  Each spring during the 40 days of Lent leading up to Easter, Pastor Tom challenges Bethany to raise enough funds to build 40 Personal Energy Transportation (PET®) Carts, one for each day of Lent.

 

From our Mobility Worldwide ministry--check out the video! "Earlier this year we participated with Mobility Worldwide-San Antonio and Mobility Worldwide-Brazos Valley (Bryan) to send a shipment of PET Carts to be distributed by the Lion's club in India. One of the happy recipients was Roshan who had lost one of her legs. We know that this is one of the Austin PET Carts by the black and white diagonal reflector on the front pedal post!

A new name but the ministry is the same!

After extensive discussions of the need to change the name of the PET® organization, the Trustees of PET International, with the help of Advertising for Good, decided on the name of Mobility Worldwide, a name that is far more descriptive of our ministry and identity, and will make us more “find-able” on the Internet and on social media.

Our Mobility Cart (PET®) is a three-wheeled, off-road wheelchair, operated by hand power. Built by a faith-based, non-profit, volunteer organization, PET Carts are delivered at no cost to people in developing countries who have lost the use of their legs.
