A container was loaded today in Abbotsford bound for Chimaltenango, Guatemala. The main focus was the 175 wheelchairs including a number of electric scooters but it also contained school supplies, sewing machines and other humanitarian items.

Hope Haven Ministries from Surrey BC collect and refurbish wheelchairs to be donated to third world countries. Upon arriving in the country they pre-screen recipients to make sure they match up the right wheelchair to the person in need.

The container will leave the port of Vancouver in approximately one week and take about three weeks to arrive.
