Programme for multiple disabled children.From April to till date we have conducted survey in 40 villages in different parts of the state. During our survey we have come across 110 children with various disabilities (like Visually Impaired, Hearing Impaired and children with additional disabilities). The children only with hearing loss has been referred to different schools for Speech therapy.This project is on going. This year we have admitted 12 new children those who are Blind with mental Retardation or Hearing loss. We could not accommodate for all the children due to lack of financial support. The background of these children are socially, economically backward and they are severely disabled due to malnutrition. These children do not have basic training & they are neglected by their parents. Hence we are providing nutritious food & suitable accommodation and appropriate training. We are happy to state that Two of our Multi disabled children haverehabilitated in the community along with parents. One child has been integrated for higher studies.
Success story of Ms.LATHA MANI
