Sponsor A Wheelchair
For a person with spinal cord injury, a wheelchair becomes an integral part of life. Given the multiple physical challenges that arise and the need to maintain a good sitting posture, an appropriate wheelchair as suggested by a quality therapist is a must.
You cannot pick a wheelchair off the shelf. Many spinal cord injured do exactly that very early into the injury either based on bad advice or on their own. They then live with it with consequences or end up spending more to buy a suitable wheelchair.
A good cushion is also a must. A quality wheelchair and cushion costs about Rs 8,000.
There are about 10,000 cases of Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) conservatively in India every year. At least 75 per cent of the cases involve persons who come from economically challenged background.
You could make a difference by sponsoring a wheelchair.
You could do it as a one-time exercise or make it an annual habit by sponsoring a wheelchair on a date that is close to your heart.
If you wish to sponsor a wheelchair, please SMS or WhatsApp your name and mobile number to Jayakumar at 0 99948 21912. Our volunteers will get in touch with you and guide you on how to send your contribution.
Note: We hope to have an online payment facility in a few months from now.
