Let’s Join Our Hands To Prepare a Very Special New Year Gift.

2017 December 30

Geetha (not her real name), 57 years old, spends her days in a wheelchair – she has been suffering from spinal muscular dystrophy, diabetes mellitus and hypertension since 2003. Now, she can move her upper limbs to some extent, but is completely dependent on others for almost all her activities of daily living.

Financial constraints due to out-of-pocket expenditure and separation from spouse have added to her agony. She lives with her only son, who is a daily wage earner.

With the Kerala government’s disability pension of ₹1000 per month and financial aid to build a house, she has begun construction of a house; however she needs financial assistance to complete it.

Geetha and her son had been living in a shed. Realising that the shed would not withstand the rain, they had to move to their incomplete house.

What can you do?

You can help Geetha attain her dream of a house of her own: with wheelchair-friendly living room, bathroom and kitchen.

This will be the greatest gift you can give a woman who has to live the rest of her life in a wheelchair: a certain amount of independence, and dignity.

Please donate and make Geetha’s dream a reality. http://palliumindia.org/donate/
