Help a differently abled person walk independently

Help a differently abled person walk independently

Impact

Polio did not stop Ayishal who aspires to complete her Ph.D.!

Ayishal Beevi is from a poor family. She was affected by polio when she was a child and lost function in her legs. She could only crawl and required the help of her parents to stand up or move.

Her father worked as a labourer and was the sole breadwinner of the family. They did not have enough money to get Ayishal the resources she needed. Without being able to walk, Aiyshal’s life seemed dark and without any possibilities.

When her parents heard of Amar Seva Sangam, they approached them for help. ASS gave Ayishal regular access to physiotherapy to help make her limbs stronger. They also gave her calipers and crutches as the doctors recommended. With therapy and the right resources, she slowly began to walk on her own.

Ayishal has now completed her B.com, and her MBA and is doing her M.Com. She wants to pursue her dreams by completing M.Phil and Ph.D as well. Her confidence to travel alone, work, and chase what she wants is inspiring.

Children like Ayishal can lead perfectly normal lives if they are given the right help and resources. You can make this possible for an underprivileged child by donating. You can give with confidence because every program on our platform is GIVEASSURED.

Program Description

Amar Seva Sangam has been committed to integrating physically and mentally challenged persons, by empowering them to have equal participation in the society. They have a manufacturing unit which specializes in customized calipers for the differently-abled.

As opposed to the heavy traditional aluminum calipers, the customized calipers are lightweight and easy to use. The Unit also deals with repair of PVC calipers and supply of specific orders depending on the need of the user. Close to 14,000 differently-abled people have been served across 800 villages. The daily struggle with accessibility for people with disabilities is huge. They are forced to be dependent on others even if they are capable in all other aspects.

Donations made to this program support the salaries, electricity, and for procurement of material for the unit. By supporting this program, you can help more beneficiaries get access to calipers and in turn claim their independence.

Program Update

Sangam has its own Orthotics Centre inside the Amar Seva Sangam Campus. We manufacture and repaire the supportive devices (aids and appliances) like Artificial Limbs, all types of Calipers, Splints, etc. for the differently abled persons for all kinds of physical disabilities. These appliances are manufactured as per the measurement prescribed by the Rehabilitation Team of Amar Seva Sangam. This centre not only manufactures, but also does repairing and servicing of the supportive aids.

We have a good team of qualified staff in our Orthotic Centre. Very suitable and appropriate raw materials are used for the manufacturing. The services are offered to the inmates of the Sangam includigng the integrated school children who live in the home within campus, Disabled Youth Trainee students, Spinal cord injured persons and public who come from various places for the services.

Story from the field

Muthumariappan is a 39years old male hailing from Sankarankovil. He was affected by polio when he was a child. It affected his walking abilities. He came to know about Amar Seva Sangam at the World Disabled Day celebrations. It was organized at Sankarankovil. He was seeking help to get assistive devices. He approached our Orthotics Centre to help him walk independently.

After he received the support from the centre, he is now running a Coffee Shop independently. He can prepare tea, coffee, and other beverages, and service his customers without anyone's help. This could not have been possible for him without the assistance he received from the Orthotics center. He is very hopeful to develop his Coffee Shop to a hotel.
