Children and Youth with Disabilities having lunch
Greetings from Nepal! We have raised US $21,261 from 202 donors till now through Global Giving. We want to thank all the donors and well-wishers for supporting us and we believe that this collaboration will bring greater impact in the lives of Children with Disabilities.
Profit making institutions such as businesses, industries are directed by Nepal Government to spend some of their profits in social events or charity as a corporate social responsibility. Patan CBR has been collaborating with different profit making institutions to organize different events for Children with Disability. Chaudhary Group, invited children and youth with disabilities to one such event. Chaudhary group will feature this event in their magazine. It will also improve brand image.
15 Children and Youth with Disabilities, 5 staffs of Patan CBR and 6 guardians of YwDs and CwDs visited LG showroom run by Chaudhary Group at Jawalakhel, Patan on December 31, 2018. The show room was decorated nicely. All the children and youth with disabilities as well as the guardians were warmly greeted by staffs and manager of the showroom and served welcome drinks.
In a big LED screen of more than 42 inches, different shows were put on in the request of the children. There were cartoon shows, national anthem and different songs. Children and youth danced to the tunes of the songs. They were very thrilled to see such a big screen and with different shows could be played by just one click. Another good motivational show was shown in which people with disabilities using wheel chair performed daring stunts in swimming pool, in sea and in big ramps. It also featured adult with different types of disabilities performing daring sports and stunts. Children and youth were so motivated to see that disabilities don’t restrict someone from having adventure.
A big cake was cut and served to all. Children and youth were given carrom board, chess, ludo(Ludo is a strategy board game for two to four players, in which the players race their four tokens from start to finish according to the rolls of a single die). They played to their heart content. Later lunch was served to all. Warm cap and muffler were distributed to children and youth with disability. Children had lot of entertainment in the event. They were so happy and amused .Later the sports material carrom board, ludo and chess were handed over to Patan CBR.
We thank Chaudhary Group for organizing such a nice event full of entertainment and good food. Children with Disabilities also need to involve in leisure and sports activities as any other normal people but they get very less opportunity for same. Chaudhary Group had provided that opportunity. It also improved participation of children with disabilities in social activities. It will help in their physical and mental development. This helps to sensitize awareness and acceptance of children with disability in the community.
