Sometimes the best ideas come from young people, too naïve to know something is impossible.

Mohan 23, and his buddy Zac Fox 22, and several other college students are uplifting many lives, by doing the seemingly impossible.

(Story continues from "Read More")

In the U.S. and in some other parts of the world, many physically limited people cannot afford the mobility devices they so desperately need.

While in the U.S. others toss them out when they’re done with them. Mohan of West Jordan, Utah saw this disparity and is taking action.

In 2017 Mohan, a Utah University student, started non-profit Project Embrace in his dorm room.

Thru this non-profit, he and other volunteers gather used wheelchairs, walkers, canes, crutches, orthotic shoes, slings and braces, refurbish them and distribute them to those in need.

Mohan estimates they have now given out more than 500 mobility devices in Utah, and thru other organizations, to the poor on the Navaho Reservation and in India and Swaziland.

When a nurse serving the Navahos told Mohan she had just one wheelchair and 12 patients in need of one, he and other volunteers arrived with 15 wheelchairs, knowing she’ll need more.

So, the seemingly impossible is happening, for these young volunteers are uplifting the world one mobility device at a time.
