Inmates Refurbish Wheelchairs

200! That is how many wheelchairs our inmates fixed up and provided to people with disabilities in Ghana.

In our partnership with Joni and Friends used and/or broken wheelchairs are collected from all across the United States, and are shipped to Southern New Mexico Correctional Facility. Inmates then begin to repair and refurbish the chairs and they are shipped off to people in third world countries who cannot afford one.

Programs like Wheels for the World provide inmates an opportunity to give back.
