Saba was born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. After contracting Polio as a child, she went through surgeries and therapies at an early age that helped her gain the ability to walk. At 14, Saba came to the United States with her family and began her new life.
Then, in her 30s, Saba returned to Ethiopia – and her life’s calling began. Click here to to learn more.
To date, we’ve distributed nearly 800 wheelchairs and 900 sets of therapy and rehabilitation equipment.
Our vision is that Ethiopia would see mobility and dignity for every citizen, that no child or adult would have to crawl on the floor or bear the shame of being unable to move freely.
Your support allows us to save lives and to proclaim God’s love to every man, woman and child.
Cargo Containers Shipped
Our mission spans the entire globe. Agape Mobility Ethiopia receives donated wheelchairs from many partners in many countries. Wheelchairs and other mobility devices are matched to each individual’s needs.
Receive and Refurbish
We receive and refurbish donated wheelchairs and other mobility devices from individuals, nursing homes, and ministry partners around the world.
We pack and ship standard cargo containers for the voyage to East Africa and overland hauling to Ethiopia. Shipping is our largest expense.
Distribute in Ethiopia
We work closely with local leaders to ensure our wheelchairs reach those in greatest need. We fit wheelchairs to adults, youth, and children.
We provide wheelchairs to adults, teens, and children throughout Ethiopia — from the cities to the rural villages. This map shows some of the locations where our wheelchairs have changed lives for good.
