Story

Endosulfan is an organochlorine insecticide It has been used in agriculture crops like cashew fruits, tea, paddy etc. for control of pests in agriculture such as whiteflies, aphids, beetles etc.

  It has been in the news for more than a decade now because of the horrid effects it has had on people , especially in villages in northern Kerala and karnataka , many children have been born with extreme birth defects and are living miserable lives.

 There are also children suffering from Down syndrome, global developmental delay muscular dystrophy and pontocerebellar atrophy exposure to pesticide can be among the many reasons for these disorders
 We’re providing rehabilitation care including physiotherapy treatment twice per month with limited resources, to prevent permanent disability
 But this much is not enough to make them functionally independent, because clinical feature is badly developed, so they need daily basis exercise and orthotics to maintain the musculoskeletal integrity
 Each taluk has more than 60 victims are there so were decided to give the exercise equipment and orthotics to the victims

 Total Fund utilization
 this funds should be made available for users who needs financial assistance
  the victims need Orthotics shoe, gait trainer, universal cuff , foam roller, wedge cushion, cp walker, adaptive utensils, standing frame, exercise ball,  free weights
 Afo, supramalleolar brace, club foot orthosis, foot drop splint, spinal orthosis,   knee contracture brace , knee hyper extension braces,

 Timely provision of orthotics and exercise related equipment that meets the needs of individual with mobility limitation is key to reduce secondary complications

 It certainly cant repay their losses but it definitely will provide them courage to face their challenges
 We appeal to you to support us in our efforts to reach out those in need for every contribution you make we will deliver all basic relief materials to the victims
