Our goal is to deliver wheelchairs to people in desperate need of them around the world. Through this process, we're bringing together people in need with people who have a heart to help. Sometimes it's hard to tell who benefits more! Throughout the U.S., we receive donations of new and used wheelchairs, parts, raw materials, financial support, and more. Hundreds of volunteers worldwide make our international efforts possible by donating their time, talents, and resources to help our cause.
For example, our volunteers:
- Collect, clean, repair, and box donated wheelchairs and equipment
- Assist in record keeping, loading and unloading trucks for pick-up and delivery
- Make pick-ups and deliveries across the country
- Help manufacture and refurbish wheelchairs

You Can Help Us Deliver Mobility, Dignity, and Hope
HHIM welcomes volunteers who will travel globally to share God’s love and deliver hope. A team is gathered along with a group of professionals like therapists and rehab specialists to help custom fit each wheelchair to the recipient. Volunteers pay their own expenses and most raise support through their home churches. Travel arrangements are coordinated by HHIM staff. If you would like to get involved with our ministry and help make a difference, take a trip with us! You can learn more by contacting Luke Russell at firstname.lastname@example.org or 605.401.3674.
