Thousands of people need your help every day
The average cost of sponsoring the manufacturing of a wheelchair is $100-$300. This small investment allows you to champion a wheelchair for a recipient in desperate need of mobility in a poverty-stricken country. Donors receive a keepsake photo of the child in their newly sponsored wheelchair. Consider making a life-changing donation today.

Hope Haven International

Since 1994, Hope Haven International has been manufacturing and distributing wheelchairs to children and adults worldwide. For many of these people, owning a wheelchair in their country is a luxury. To date, 124,567 wheelchairs have been distributed to people in 108 countries. Beginning in the small town of Rock Valley and expanding to Sioux Falls, SD, we are making a significant impact in the world—and you can too!


Our ministry is continuously working to help people with disabilities reach their full potential! We do this by developing opportunities to improve the economic position, social welfare, and independence of people with disabilities. We work closely with relief and development organizations, mission groups, and individuals in various countries to deliver wheelchairs to those in desperate need.

Be the change
“The image is forever in my mind of that moment when my wife, Sheila, tenderly placed Ploiesti  in her new wheelchair (in Romania). After carrying her 8-year-old since birth because she couldn’t afford a wheelchair, this young mother was overcome with joy. She hugged my wife with simultaneous laughter and tears.” – Loren Boyens Sioux Falls Rotary West (SD)


Hundreds of volunteers worldwide make our international efforts possible by donating their time, talents, and resources to help our cause.

Creating Opportunities

Adequate wheelchairs provide people with disabilities the mobility, inclusion, and care they deserve and need.


Our ministry provides quality wheelchairs that are safety-tested and tailored to meet the needs and size of each individual, giving people the opportunity to live a fulfilling life!

Build a Community

Our goal is to deliver wheelchairs to people in desperate need of them around the world.


Through this process, we’re bringing together individuals in need with people who have a heart to help. Sometimes, it’s hard to tell who benefits more!
