The ferocious COVID -19 is back with its dreadful consequences in the year 2021. Once again the vulnerable and marginalized especially the persons with disabilities, are being crushed under the heavy weight of the dramatic pandemic resulting to unemployment, inaccessibility to basic needs, difficulty in sustaining their lives.
NAB India Centre for Blind Women & Disability Studies aims to sustain 500 people with visual and mobility impairments (including their families) for at least 3 months with basic dry ration and basic medical care at their door step in these dark and difficult times. The cost of one months supplies for one person is Rs. 1200 and a whole family is Rs. 3500. Our total need is Rs. 6 lakhs.
Any contribution could make a huge difference in the life of several families of the visually impaired or persons with disability.
100 Families Reached,
500 Still Awaiting
With support of Shiprocket, reaching out to the families of persons with disability was smooth and seamless for the organization at this time of pandemic. We highly appreciate the service of Shiprocket.
We are thankful to Make My Trip Foundation, for sending NAB India Centre for Blind Women & Disability Studies, enough oxygen concentrators to lend it to our disabled friends who are struggling for Oxygen cylinders or hospitals to save their loved ones.
Anyone in need of these concentrators may reach us with valid documents. The Centre will make it available to the needy disabled person.
We thank volunteers, professionals, individuals, corporate, Standard Chartered and CII under CSR initiatives for supporting the most disadvantaged section of society, visually impaired men & women, in this challenging time and hope more people come forward to help as hundreds of disabled still are waiting for help.
