The Pella Lion’s Club is donating $500 to PET IA, a Leighton based nonprofit that sends wheelchairs to third world countries, primarily countries in Africa. These aren’t regular wheelchairs, they are three wheeled, hand-cranked chairs meant for traveling rough terrain. Glen Vander Werf, President of the Lion’s, says they heard a presentation from PET IA after one of their members recommended the project. Their donation will fund two rough terrain wheelchairs.
