Bali

A New Wheelchair!

Pak Gunawan is 36 years old and was born without any complications, however, as he got older, he got progressively weaker.  He could still walk using a cane until he was about 15 years old and then he had to start using a wheelchair.  Now, he lives with his parents, his wife, and his son.  He is able to work at a little store near his house where he sells postcards, souvenirs, and drinks at a nearby tourist attraction. Since he lives in a very mountainous area of Bali, his father pushes Pak Gunawan to the store.  However, he is grateful for the wheelchair since it allows him to get out of his house, work to provide for his family, and be more involved in community events.
