Can you help? Over the year we collect and store wheel chairs, ready to ship them out on our container to Zambia. Hundreds of disabled children and adults have benefited from supporters and organsiations kindness and we wish to continue this valuable work and much appreciated work. In recent years we have managed to send out between 120 and 150 in each container.
The next shipment is planned for October and we only have about 70 - half of our normal number. If you know someone or an organsiation who has wheel chairs we can have please contact us.

Trevor Mills, one of our supporters in Old Colwyn North Wales, decided to walk his age within a month and raise money for HHI. Given Trevor is 78 that was quite a challenge but he did it and raised £226 with a bit more money promised.A fantastic achievement and the money he raised will go very far in the work we do. Trevor said most of the sponsors included family, church and his hairdresser - our thanks to all of them for supporting Trevor and HHI.
Over the 25 days Trevor walked he did between 2.6 to 4.2 miles; leaving home and down to the promenade and then along the coastal path. He spoke to many people on his walks - when Trevor was asked why he was walking and he took the opportunity to inform people about HHI and the volunteers who work with the charity.
Well done Trevor - you are a star!
In our mailing before Christmas we sent out an HHI Christmas card which included a greeting to our friends in Monze. The idea was for churches to write their greetings in the card and make a donation in lieu of giving cards to each other. We sent these onto Monze to wish them a Happy Christmas and for them to know that many people in the UK were thinking of them. The picture shows a number of our friends holding the cards. Thank you from us in the UK for taking part and sending us a donation. We wish you all a happy and prosperous 2014. Thank you also from Monze who passed on a message to wish all our supporters a Happy 2014.
