Every team member will directly impact people living with disability in a life-changing way. Apply today to serve people with disabilities by providing mobility and sharing the tangible love of Christ.

What to know about Chile:
Chile extends approximately 2,700 miles from its boundary with Peru to the tip of South America at Cape Horn. A long, narrow country, with the Andes range dominating the landscape, the country has a wide variety of climates, from the coastal desert beginning in the tropical north to the cold subantarctic southern tip.

Chile is the first country to conduct the country-wide implementation of the Model Disability Survey (MDS) as part of the Second National Study on Disability (ENDISC II).

Cost and Safety Protocols:
While a license to travel and a visa are required, Joni and Friends will obtain those documents on your behalf. The cost for this outreach is all-inclusive. Outreach costs may vary for applicants outside of the United States. Wheels for the World will adhere to country protocols related to COVID-19, as well as other health and safety requirements.
