Bring new life to donated wheelchairs and prepare them for shipment around the world at one of our ten regional wheelchair workshops in Iowa, Minnesota and South Dakota.
Wheelchair Distribution Trips
Anyone with a heart to help others is invited to join a Hope Haven International Ministries wheelchair distribution trip. Teams are in need of doctors and nurses, physical and occupational therapists, wheelchair seating specialists, and language translators. Other important volunteer duties include paperwork, photography, and providing support to wheelchair recipients – you don’t need a specific set of talents to join! Volunteers pay their own expenses or raise support from home churches, family and friends. Arrangements are coordinated by HHI staff.

Attics and basements hold hidden treasures - wheelchairs and other medical equipment that are desperately needed around the world! You can do a one-time collection drive in your area or volunteer to be a drop off location for others to bring their wheelchairs throughout the year. You can be located anywhere in the country to participate in this. Truck Drivers are also needed to help transport the wheelchairs across the continent back to NW Iowa.
