Help change the lives of 400 persons with disabilities in Ladakh, Kashmir
It’s so difficult for most able bodied person to accept a person with disability. But, they aren’t asking much. All that these individuals need is love, empathy and a sense of belonging.
Ratna Nidhi Charitable Trust is just about doing that. The organisation is committed to the welfare of people from the most underprivileged strata of society without distinction of caste, creed or colour. Its emphasis is on assisting the children and youth who are the citizens of tomorrow and the disabled who need a support to help them join mainstream society.
The organisation is changing the lives of 400 disabled people in Ladakh, by donating Jaipur Foots, Wheelchairs, Callipers, etc. enabling them to walk again. The organisation is on a mission to give persons with disabilities from disadvantaged backgrounds the freedom to walk and move again. The aim is to transform the lives of the disadvantaged and disabled people to become contributing members of the society, instead of being perceived as a burden to their families.
MOBILITY CAMP AT LEH
A camp will be organised in June 2017 at Mahabodhi International Meditation Center (MIMC) in Leh, with a mission to impact the lives of 400 physically challenged patients.
The camp will provide the following services to the disabled
- Fitting of Jaipur foot prosthetic to amputees.
- Distribution of wheelchairs to people with spinal cord disabilities
- Fitting of Callipers to polio-affected children/youth.
A screening camp will be organised under the presence of Ratnanidhi’s technical team prior to the distribution camp. The technical team will then manufacture the Jaipur foot & Callipers at Ratna Nidhi’s Mumbai centre. Post which, the distribution camp will be organised in Leh-Ladakh in the month of June 2017.
This camp will target patients from the most isolated regions of Ladakh & will empower the disabled to walk in the mountains with pride and self-esteem. This camp will be conducted at an altitude of 11000 ft above sea level.
