Nueva Esperanza – New Hope


In 1990 there were hardly any wheelchairs in Sucre for people with physical disabilities. Many of them lay in their beds without ever having seen the city and its markets. In 1992, our association commissioned the production of simple wheelchairs made from recycled materials at a company. Several years later, we helped to set up our own workshop for the repair of these wheelchairs and walking aids. Together with the dedicated group “Nueva Esperanza” and our partner association: Jugend-Bildung-Hilfe in Deutschland (JBH), we supported several handicapped people in being able to feed themselves and their families, for example as tailors or cobblers.
