The Mobility Project with Danny Quintana

Sep 18, 2021, 2:00 pm

Weller Book Works is grateful to host Danny Quintana, author of The Mobility Project.

For 20 years Lisa Murphy, Jeff Murphy and a group of volunteers traveled the world with the Mobility Project, delivering the gift of mobility to the poorest people on the planet. They helped tens of thousands of disabled poor to gain mobility and hope. The disabled received wheelchairs, walkers, crutches from the United States, items they never would be able to afford. Like Simon of Cyrene, we helped people carry their cross of disability. From the hot tropical jungles of Costa Rica, Thailand, Sao Tome, to the deserts of Afghanistan, the disabled poor got a new chance at life. Our thanks was their immense gratitude. Their families were helped by no longer having to carry their disabled members. People who were often trapped in their homes as shut ins for years were finally able to come out and be a part of their societies. Accident and disease as well as age can cause anyone to have a major disability. In poor countries this is especially difficult for the disabled. Come and read along and enjoy these incredible adventures in humanitarian work.

This program is made possible with support from Weller Book Works.
