This campaign has stopped and can no longer accept donations.



There are no ex-soldiers. Once a Soldier, Always a Soldier! Meet 62-years old Indian Army soldier, Naik Panduram Yadav, a paraplegic veteran on a wheelchair with a 'Never-Say-Die' spirit.

An unfortunate spinal cord injury in the line of duty had him medically boarded out of the Indian Army at a young age. The undefeatable sepoy Panduram fought the unbearable pain and went through the rehab process for many years. He also tried his hands at sports while on the wheelchair. This para-athlete has won many medals at state and national level.

Being on wheelchair hasn't affected his zest for life nor has it dampened his love for India. He is ready even today to protect the country. Salute to his spirit. To be financially independent too, he wants to start a small Photocopying shop in Pune which he can operate even while wheelchair bound. Support him in his endeavour. Please donate generously for this cause via Milaap

Amount needed is INR 4.5 Lakhs for the photocopying machine, small shop and about INR 50k for consumables to start the business and Sepoy Pandurang to stand on his own feet.
