"Using crutches of the proper length has greatly increased my ability to walk. Earlier, I used to have constant back pain. Now, after getting training to walk properly with my new crutches, that pain is gone. Life has become much easier now" , says 44 year old Lissy, who works in a tailoring unit. She was given elbow crutches under the ATMA Mobility Project. She was assessed and trained by experts at the ATMA Mobility Camp. A pair of crutches were specially made for her, and delivered to her home town of Kodakara.
27 year old Janeesh, bedridden with Diplegia, was given a Toilet Chair under this project.
With this, the number of people supported with Mobility Aids by ATMA Foundation, has reached 74- including the victims of the Kerala Floods in 2018.
