With a contribution of Rs 1,500, you can prevent a blind person from becoming a beggar and support their livelihood.
Approximately 150 residents of the Odisha Association for the Blind, Bhubaneswar, have become more vulnerable and food & income insecure since the national lockdown was announced last year. Prior to that, they earned their meagre livelihood by selling newspapers, toys and engaging in other street vending activities, which is now prohibited for non-registered vendors. Facing the situation of almost starvation, many blind people may fall to begging for survival.
The Department of Social Security & Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities, Government of Odisha has approached HAI with a request of donating at least 100 weighing machines to be donated to blind people. This will help them to offer weighing services to the public to earn their livelihood. Together with that, HAI also plans to provide them with masks, sanitisers, etc. to protect them from the virus.
Please donate now and help them.
