Bahatala - the nonprofit organization that the Church works through to distribute wheelchairs. This is the founder's wife - he passed away. They not only get wheelchairs, but they specially make wheelchairs also. There are many children with cerebral palsy here. For many, they get fed in the morning and then the parents leave them all day because they have to go to work in the rice fields. They make chairs that can be taken to the field with them. It is a great organization.
They also make artificial legs. They are made by hand by the man in this picture. They do not have modern equipment, but he does a good job.
