Elia is shown in the new wheelchair she received at the Kanchindu medical mission clinic.  An organization in California donated 100 of these chairs for Zambia.  They are designed for rural areas--sturdy, easy to assemble with simple tools, and each comes complete with a pump.  Elia is a widow with two young children. She earns money for basic necessities by making flower crafts from candy wrappers.  Her new wheelchair gives her additional freedom and mobility.
