College Student Collects Wheelchairs And Crutches For The Needy

When Mohan Sudabattula was volunteering in the prosthetic department of a Utah hospital, he noticed that medical rehab equipment like crutches and wheelchairs tended to have a short life: that is, it was typically used by one person, then thrown away.

This experience became the impetus behind Project Embrace, Sudabattula's nonprofit organization. Today, the 23-year-old student and his team of volunteers scour the shelves of thrift stores and other sources, and receive personal donations from the community. They refurbish the gear, then send it to medical facilities around the world where it can be used again.
