Deepti Special School and Rehabilitation Centre, is a special school located in Adoor, Kerala, India that provides education and rehabilitation therapy services to nearly 200 children with special needs. This Project was open to fund the expenses for purchasing electric wheelchairs for the use of Deepti School students. It was a great act of kindness when the sponsor, Mrs. Mercy Koshy decided to offer the birthday gift money that she got, for the benefit of few physically challenged children. She took special interest in finding out the availability of self-operable electric wheelchairs similar to what’s used in western countries and offered to pay for full expenses for the same. In addition to this, Mrs Koshy & her husband Mr. Koshy (Thampi) got their friends to contribute for the cause, applied for and obtained 100% company match for the total.
With the money received, Deepti school was able to purchase two electric wheelchairs and build a much-needed ramp to the physical therapy building. CHN members worked with Deepti School to identify the right product and got it delivered onsite. CHN appreciate the generosity of the Mrs. Koshy and her husband Mr. Thampi. We hope that this project encourages anyone who wants to do a similar act of kindness at Deepti or elsewhere.
