The organization is mandated with a double manifest, 1) Collect used medical mobility equipment and distribute the refurbished equipment to countries that are affected by conflict, natural disasters and severe economic distress to persons that are unable to acquire the critically needed mobility equipment. 2) To lessen the environmental carbon footprint impact caused by discarding this specialized medical mobility equipment to scrap that is shredded and melted to molten in order for reprocessing and used for other commodities in Ontario.
HMI was incorporated in 2007 and granted Charity status from the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) on August of 2008; the organization has since gained global recognition that aims to help persons with mobility impairments in numerous countries.
HMI collects and refurbishes all types of wheelchairs to facilitate specialized needs of the recipient person that has mobility impairment in order to facilitate different physical needs.
