Our own COVID hero continues to transform lives

Despite having herself contracted COVID-19, Mrs. Victoria, our coordinator of activities for the People with Disabities (PwD), has continued to be dedicated to improving their lives throughout the pandemic.  Last month, she took seven mentally challenged individuals to hospital for treatment, and she has begun training PwD in income-generating activities like candle making and threadwork design.  She was also the chief guest at an event organized to share information about how PwD can collect the government-related benefits available to them.  

And thanks to her help, we are able to report another success story:

Mr. Donald was stricken by polio when he was 4 and his right leg was permanently affected.  He used a walking stick to attend school and was able to complete his 12th standard in.  But was not able to study further due to the circumstances in his family's straitened circumstances and his difficulty using public transport. His parents were worried about whether he would ever be able t support himself.  

Through the Mobility India Scheme, Mrs. Victoria was able to get him an artificial leg, and gave him the assistance he needed to complete a Computer Science course in Open University.  Today, he works in a computer centre in Thillai Nagar and earns enough to not only support himself but help his parents and sister.

Your donations have helped fund Victoria's work, and we are deeply grateful for your support.
