Gift of mobility to 60 persons with disabilities

Gift of mobility to 60 persons with disabilities

Persons with disabilities (PWDs) are mostly excluded from mainstream society, especially if they have an apparant physical disability. With their mobility being restricted, and no way to reach schools, offices and access public spaces, their situation becomes concerning.

With economic woes affecting almost everyone and threatening progress towards education and empowerment, one fact stays strong - your unwavering support towards the cause of disability inclusion. With your generous contributions, we have been able to impart the gift of mobility to Persons with Disabilities across the province of Sindh. 

When our beneficiaries recieved the gift of their own wheelchair, they described it as an instrument towards change. Empowering men, women and children by providing wheelchairs to them is the first step towards mobilizing them to step forward to change their lives. One wheelchair allows a person to have access to a school, followed by seeking employement to support themselves and their family. 

From all of us at NOWPDP we would like to take this chance to extend our gratitude towards you for being generous donors and making it possible for mobility to be gained by all.

We hope that you will continue to support us in our mission of creating an inclusive Pakistan, and a society that vows for change.

Pakistan has an alarming rate of 27 million men, women, and children who are reported to have disabilities. In a developing country where approximately two million people live below the poverty line, assistive devices are not considered as basic needs for persons with disabilities (PWDs).

Last year in the months of April and May 2021, we were able to provide eleven wheelchairs to people with physical disabilities in Sujawal and Karachi. Sujawal is one of the poorest districts in the province of Sindh and has a high prevalence of disabilities.

It is with the assistance of well-wishers like you that we were able to make an impact in the lives of these eleven people. One wheelchair opens a road of possibilities; it allows ease of transport, means to and from schools and colleges, and most importantly, the ability to get become self-sufficient and independent. Together, we can impact the lives of 49 more PWDs so that mobility does not become a matter of luck, but a basic necessity for all PWDs.
