    Pooja Ojha

    from Bhind, Madhya Pradesh

Story

Pooja Ojha is a resident of Bhind, a city in Madhya Pradesh and an International Para Canoe athlete. She was the first international prize winner of the state and in 2017 won a silver medal in Asian Canoe Para Championship. Apart from this, she has further participated and won medals in 6 national and 3 international competitions; hence making India proud. However, she is in dire need of a sports wheelchair to make her day-to-day chores easier and especially to offer convenience while travelling to different states or countries for competition.

The importance of the wheelchair in Pooja’s life can be truly known by someone who lives and faces challenges like her. Wheelchair has become a cornerstone of her life and its absence makes her life incomplete primarily because it helps her in fulfilling her dream of becoming a top para canoe athlete. 

 A sports wheelchair is different from a regular one considering that it is much easier to operate and can also be folded and taken from one place to another without causing many troubles. However, this chair is quite expensive but would prove to be crucial in easing down the travel process for Pooja.

The financial situation of Pooja is bleak; hence she is unable to afford a sports wheelchair. This is especially difficult because her father is a mason and mother a homemaker and whatever earning is acquired by the family is spent mostly in the treatment of her brother, who injured his spinal cord in a car accident 2 years back and has been in a wheelchair since then.

I  request all the people who are reading this message to help me raise approx. INR 70,000 for her sports wheelchair so that she further shines brighter and her efforts for the country as well as her family doesn’t go in vain. The reason for setting the deadline as 10th March is because she will be participating in Asian Championship to be held in Thailand. It would prove to be more fruitful if she is able to buy the wheelchair before the tournament takes place.  If possible, please contribute whatever amount you deem suitable and if you are unable to do so for whatever reason, then kindly help me share this page with others.
