We want you to participate in blessing those that need a wheelchair in a third world country. Just let us know where you are going and we will supply a free wheelchair to take with you. You and your spouse could each take one as personal property and the airlines will take them free of charge. Once you reach your destination country, you simple move them through customs as your personal property to avoid any taxes or customs. Our ministry team will meet you at the airport and see that they get to the selected recipients, child, teen, adult or Senior. You will be an amazing miracle and real a blessing to those you touch. Why not meet your new friends and create a lasting relationship?

Your generous gift will help us fund our missions to help those in need. Together, we can make a difference.

We connect with organizations in third world countries and teach them how to build their own Biosand Water Filters. They use their own Leadership, labour and materials. All material are locally available.  There are now over 500,000 filters in over 75 countries. We mainly work in India, Mexico and Nicaragua. We have recently connect with with Bolivia. 

There are thousands of  special people in third world countries that need, but do not have a wheelchair. Children and Adults alike.

Imagine being immobile for lack of a wheelchair. Your gift of $100 or more will provide a grateful child, teenager, adult or senior with a wheelchair. You can provide a little freedom, mobility, independence and dignity. We call it a gift of LIFE.

If you are writing a check, please make it payable to Friends Who Care and send to 63 Sunlake Way SE Calgary, AB T2X 3E4. A receipt for tax deduction purposes will be issued.

Thank you for your care,  love and compassion.
