As the ultimate objective of this project is to address 50 Parkinson’s patients to have access to a walking cane and enable them to move from place to place without assistance.so, that they can’t do what they need like attending their social life interaction, participating in PD patient's support group meetings, brings their medication, going to toilets, and so on.

2. Who is benefited?

It is clear that PD patients are the direct beneficiaries of the support and have an access to move from place to place without the support of others. However, their caregivers or families are also helped since the burden of the disease needs their active level of attention.

3. Achievement overview

During this reporting period, with the fund amount obtained from good-hearted individuals and supporters, the following activities were achieved  

-          50 PD patients whose stages are high demands the support of walking stick were getting support and received their stick

-          With inviting gusts of expertise like inspirational speakers and Medical doctors, the half-day motivational, inspirational, and PD patients empowerment training were given for 50 PD patients

4. Challenges

-          The demand for PD patients is somehow increasing as its progressive nature requires additional demands and the newly registered onset and PD cases are increasing.   

-          Physiotherapy and speech therapy are requested highly and the number of PD patient's medical support coverage is still needed due to attention.

5. Living Story

Most of the selected PD patients for the support of walking stick are above 60 years of age. That means they are mostly living with other health complications and in one or another way they are characterized as low-income living standards.

Among the PD patients receiving the support, these two old age fathers were said that; first when they are gathering together and share their experience with someone like themselves, by itself is an advantage to see and take a lesson from others and the other said that I am not able to move without the support of assistive materials like a walking stick or human assistance, but whoever they are your wife or children or caregivers, you may not access all your ways. Therefore, here I am today coming with the support of my child but the burden will not be the same while I return home today. They do thank the only PD organization PPSO-E and the donors
