Our founder, Francis Mugwanya, knows first-hand what it's like to crawl and be looked down upon; his life was forever changed when he was given his first wheelchair at the age of 12. Knowing Jesus and believing in the Word of God transformed the way Francis thought about himself.
As a young adult, from his own meager earnings, he would save his money and buy wheelchairs for people as often as he could (1 wheelchair cost 1.5 months of his salary). After giving away about a dozen wheelchairs the Lord began to draw donors such as Free Wheelchair Mission and Joni and Friends to help out as well.
The Father’s Heart Mobility Ministry was officially founded in 2006 under Gaba Community Church, Uganda. Beginning in 2011 the work of Father’s Heart Mobility Ministry was launched full-time and in 2012 received NGO registration.
To date, we have given over 16,000 people in Uganda their mobility!
