Helping them walk again
Each year around 1,200 poor men, women and children come to the Centre for Handicapped in Kundasale seeking our help in rebuilding lives blighted by illnesses, accidents and birth defects which have left them with physical disabilities and have curtailed their ability to live normal, productive lives. Thanks mainly to generous donors from all over the world we are able to respond positively to their plight and to provide them with free, custom-built artificial limbs, orthoses, wheelchairs, crutches and other devices that give them the prospect of a better life. Adults are able to return to their professions or build new ones and children are able to lead normal, happy childhoods and to look forward with confidence to brighter futures. Since the Centre was set up in 1992 almost 21,000 recipients from all over the island have benefited from our services.
“Our mission is enabling people with physical disabilities irrespective of race, religion, ethnicity, caste or status to lead near normal lives”
