"Giving long-awaited freedom and mobility" is His Helping Hand's goal with every community provided wheelchair access ramp. What is especially noteworthy is that this labor-intensive effort is all done by volunteers. The only cost is for raw materials. Your donation can help bring independent mobility to the area's low income folks with disabilities. If you would like also to help with the ramp build event, mark your calendars now and let us know of your interest.
