MOTION GRAPHIC: LDS Charities Provides Wheelchairs Around the World

For 1 percent of the world's population, mobility isn't as simple as putting one foot in front of the other. An estimated 45 million people need but don't have access to a wheelchair.

LDS Charities, the humanitarian arm of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, works with local organizations to donate tens of thousands of wheelchairs each year.

See what skills recipients are taught that promote self-sufficiency and keep their new set of wheels rolling.
