Lighting the Path

"Run, Run, as Fast as You Can, and Push, Push"

That’s what three Swazi boys did to get a man to a Luke Commission mobile hospital recently.

Hezekiel Dlamini, age 51, received a PET cart in 2013 when TLC visited his rural community of Luve.

When The Luke Commission returned in 2014, Hezekiel was determined to be there.  He appreciates his PET cart and uses it every day.

However, he wanted to ask for a regular wheelchair, too.

“We came five kilometers this morning with me steering and the kids pushing.”
