Dear Donors,

Greetings from India!!

We are very grateful to you for your generous support to our new project "Enabling Lives of 500 People with Disabilities". This nine months young project has received overwhelming responses that have built our confidence and faith in the project more than before we had. You will be surprised and happy to know that in these nine months, we have been able to provide assistive devices to 46 people with disabilities, we distributed 30 digital hearing aids to young school going children with hearing loss, and 16 customized imported wheelchairs. We have assigned a task to our interns to collect the feedback, and usages of these devices. We will be ready with this report next month. We will share the feedback report with you too.

You would love to read the following stories of Ms Bhavina Patel and Sonal Patel are Paratable Tennis Players; represent India in the International championship of Paratabel Tennis Players. Both Ms Bhavina and Ms Sonal were trainees of Blind People’s Association. BPA has motivated them to choose sports as a carrier. They were reluctant at the initial stage, BPA has developed infrastructure facility for para table tennis, and motivated them to practice the table tennis every day.

Ms Bhavina and Ms Sonal Patel are world class players now; they played at Commonwealth games, Asian Para Olympics and many international events. Earlier, both the players used simple sport wheelchairs, and faced many difficulties during the games. Now, they were provided customized imported sport wheelchairs under this project. They were so happy with these wheelchairs, these wheelchairs are lightweight, can turn at 360 angles, and wheels are very good. These wheelchairs have increased their speed, efficiency and comfort while playing table tennis on wheelchairs.

Recently, they participated in Para Table Tennis Costa Brava Open Championship 2019, organized on 20th March to 22nd March at Giorna (Spain). Both the lady players played heart winning matches in single as well as in doubles. Ms Bhavina won Silver Medal, and Ms Sonal won Bronze Medal in singles. They played team tournament as well, they won Silver Medal in the team tournament. It was very pride moment for India as well as for the organization also.

We must thank you all donors, well-wishers who supported this project which enabled us to provide customized imported these two young promising players that have resulted in three medals.
