A group of teenagers took it upon their sweet hearts to build a wheelchair ramp for amputee, David Green. And they did it all without having no previous experience in carpentry. None.
As well as being an amputee, David is also a stroke survivor, having been hit by it seven times.
He couldn’t afford the much-needed wheelchair ramp for his home and had no choice but to be carried up and down the stairs.
The teens, volunteers for a non-profit organisation (Ozark Mission Project), worked long hours in really hot weather to make sure they got the job done. Seven hours a day mightn’t seem like a lot to some, but add the heat and it probably felt longer.
“Folks don’t usually do stuff like this for me”, David said, pausing for a few moments as if trying to compose himself, “and I appreciate each and every one of you”.
There are good people, in a multitude of places, doing great things for others. The teenagers are testament to that.
