This morning volunteers at First Christian Church will pack about 200 children's wheelchairs into a tractor-trailer truck bound for Iowa, where they'll be refurbished and then sent around the world. For disabled children in developing countries such as Vietnam, Romania and Guatemala, whose lives have been limited to sitting or crawling, the chairs will offer a first chance to get around on their own. The children's liberator is Studio City resident David Richard.

In the corner of a Simi Valley warehouse sit rows of small children's wheelchairs, close to 200 of them. Battered and weathered, they will be packed into a tractor-trailer Saturday and shipped to Iowa, where they will be spiffed up and sent around the world--to Vietnam, to Romania and to Guatemala. For disabled children in those developing countries, whose lives have been limited to sitting or crawling, the wheelchairs will offer a first chance to get around on their own.
