Wheelchair Factory Enables Guatamalans


Many Guatemalans with physical disabilities often spend much of their lives indoors.

Now, one wheelchair factory is changing that by giving free chairs to thousands of people.

The factory also provides jobs for people with disabilities, who until now have remained on the fringes of Guatemalan society.

This is a good time to ask the question. I know Sikhi teaches Sikhs should spend their day out in the community engaged in seva. What happens when someone is disabled? I'm wondering about people with physical disabilities, but also psych. disabilities.
