Five-year-old Shelby in Kenya has cerebral palsy, and for a while she and her mother Anne didn't have the support that Shelby needed.

Read Shelby's and Anne's story, and see the transformative difference the right wheelchair has made in their lives as well as across their community.
Five years ago, Anne was blessed with a baby girl, Shelby, who was ushered into the world with much love and affection. In the beginning, everything was fine; however, as time went on Shelby seemed different from other children. After many trips to various hospitals and doctors, Shelby’s parents learned that their daughter had cerebral palsy.
“Life was very difficult,” Anne said.
