“If you meet someone who has no smile, give them one of yours.”
– Dan Zadra
Many of our volunteers help destitute patients by contributing for their medicines, tests and other day to day requirements. We plan health camps and support the needy in whatever best way we can.
You can also adopt a patient and take care of his/her medical needs.
One of the causes we are working to support is related to Muscular Dystrophy (MD). MD is progressive neuromuscular genetic disorder in which the muscles gradually lose their strength, leaving the person dependent on others for everything including basic needs. Generally, it affects more than one sibling in a family. Some forms of MD are apparent in childhood, while others may not appear until teenage or middle age.
There is currently no way to prevent or reverse muscular dystrophy, but different kinds of therapy can improve a person’s quality of life and delay the progression of symptoms.
We are working to support IAMD, Integrated Muscular Dystrophy Rehabilitation Center in Solan, Himachal Pradesh, India, http://iamd.in. IAMD, in addition to Solan has setup Rahaat Centre in Delhi and Chandigarh. In Delhi, we are working to support the centre and also some of the affected families who do not have any source of earnings.
The first “Muscular Dystrophy awareness & fun Camp" was organised on 14 April 2019 in Delhi. More than 250 members participated, including 59 MD affected children and adults. 7 powered wheelchairs were gifted to the needy. There was lot of fun activities, enthusiasm, dance and music.
