Support for Disabled People in Sri Lanka
By Rasangi De Silva, partnered with SamajaSathkara.lk
In Sri Lanka, there are so many children, adults and seniors with mental and physical disabilities due to various reasons. These disabled people have various needs such as wheelchairs, orthopedic equipments such as water mattresses, air mattresses, and hearing aids etc. However, families can not afford these requirements. People in remote areas do not even have access to a wheelchair provided by the government.. They cannot work because of their disabilities. Basic needs cannot be met. With your donations, we can help them to improve their living standards.
We plan to raise 2000 AUD+
