How did Mathru start?
Paraplegic brave heart, Arjuna awarded and padmashree Malathi K.Holla, afflicted by polio at infancy, stands tall in the world of paraplegic sports in india by sheer grit and determination and has won medals around the world.This 45 year old Bank Manager has launched the "Mathru Fountation" to serve the physically challenged with motherly care. Lending her a helping hand are the former International sprinter Ashwini Nachappa, International Cricketer Venkatesh Prasad, Krishna Reddy H.T. and Dr.Sridhar M.K. both physically challenged and Anantha Bhat M., a leading advocate. Our purpose
The foundation is already looking after 17 children for the past 5 years by way of providing them free facilities like food, accommodation, education and medical support. We would like to take on more number of people based on the financial viability
We want to start the process of vocational development to build self confidence and work towards financial independence. Injury largely due to accidents or infection of spinal cord severely affect the lower extremities and render the paraplegic with no control over their bladder and bowels. They easily succumb to associated medical complications.They feel unwanted and their morale hit a new low.In order to provide them a medical care, we have to establish a medical care centre and instill self confidence in them by giving vocational training. Create our own center which will address our purpose for larger scale by slowly moving towards self-sustainability.
