A rewarding seated stairlift GIFT for a man who gives and gives!

When activist and reputed lawyer Howard Brown faced a life-threatening injury, leaving his leg amputated, we at DirectLifts were fortunate to be able to lend a hand to a deserving individual allowing him to continue his struggle!

Howard Brown is a fighter – a fighter for justice, a voice for the voiceless, endlessly seeking justice for the families who’s lost their loved ones to murder and suicide!

In this journey, to which he has dedicated his entire life; Howard was that shimmer of light that kept most grieving families alive!

But life wasn’t fair on Howard!

A ruptured popliteal aneurism in the leg saw his leg amputated, halting his usual daily chores and his work!

And with a two-storied house, Howard had given up hope in leading a normal life again!

He struggled to get up and down the stairs, and in his words, said,
“a one-legged man doesn’t belong in a two-storied house.”

But society was not ready to give up on a man who hadn’t stop giving, by all means!

While all his friends and the families he had supported came together to help; it was during this time that Channel 9 reached out to us.

Hearing Howard’s story and the great things he’s done deeply moved us.

A man of this stature shouldn’t be suffering, and that’s when we at Direct Lifts volunteered to provide a seated stairlift for Howard’s house to help him up and down the stairs!

While Howard left home with his friends, there was a wonderful surprise in store when he came back with our technical team, working in a short span to install the lift in his home!

It was a wonderful moment to see him use our lift to get up the stairs, and we were glad to be a part of this initiative!

We at DirectLifts are sincerely grateful to have been able to help out a deserving individual at the time that he needed it the most!

This lift meant the world to him – It meant that he could continue living in his home, his mobility unimpeded, and keep on with all the good work he’s been doing!

A fitting gift for a deserving man!
