Pensioner repairs wheelchairs and donates CE to needy people
There are people who are truly angels. A pensioner from Fortaleza uses his free time and repairs wheelchairs to donate to the needy in Ceara with disabilities. 60-year-old Ivo Francisco Ferreira de Souza does everything himself and says he enjoys helping people.
He mines the material himself to repair the chairs, solicits donations of tools, and crafts them piece by piece with the greatest care and love in the world.
“Don’t ask him for anything. Everything he earns from donations, he uses to fix chairs and donate to the needy. Plus, it still helps stray animals. Seu Ivo is a wonderful person,” Cristina Silva of Semeando Amor Group told Só Notícia Boa, who shared a video of the elderly man on Instagram. (see below)
Those who know Mr. Ivo Francisco say that he was always supportive. The elderly man participated in several social actions and after retirement started repairing discarded wheelchairs and bathroom chairs.
“I see people using it after it gets old [a cadeira], goes to the trash. Then I take it, repair it, and those who can’t buy one of those chairs take it here at home,” said the elderly man.
According to Cristina Silva, the pensioner does not earn anything and even takes the little earned to buy material. What he doesn’t get from donations, he buys, but the chair is not repaired.
Christina told that her Ivo, in addition to helping people in need, also started doing something for abandoned animals.
“He has set up a pole and when a puppy or a puppy falls into the pits near his house, he goes there and rescues them,” the volunteer said.
His video caught the attention of netizens who praised the elderly man’s attitude. “It’s not even people. That’s an angel,” said one follower.
