Just ₹850 can cover medicines for one child for a month!
Satya Special School need more time, so this fundraiser has been extended!
The funds raised is enough to cover the cost of medicines for 71 children for a month.
Of all the children with special needs that Satya support, 75% belong to families below the poverty line. Many have long-term medication requirements and if not given regularly and as prescribed, it can worsen their conditions and restrict everyday activities. Plus, it’s important to stock a range of options - such as different size of tablets for varying ages and disabilities, or syrups if swallowing is difficult - at hand at all times.WHY PUDUCHERRY
There are more than 19,000 people with disabilities in Puducherry and many of them lack access to proper healthcare. Satya Special School run four urban and three rural centres and their mobile therapy unit covers 44 villages. Most of the children they come in contact with or those who come to their centres are often in dire need of necessary medicines to function on a daily basis.
The situation of differently abled children remains deplorable, particularly in rural areas and among the lower socio-economic population. Differently abled children in India are subject to multiple deprivations and limited opportunities.
This is an extraordinary place All the love care, expertise woven together into a splendid tapestry. Many, many congratulations to Chitra & team for their ability in overcoming heavy odds.
There is a special aura of happiness that the students all share. Some wonderful work that is going far further than the building’s four walls.
The target amount is aimed at covering 144 units of medicines, with each unit covering one month’s supply for one child costing ₹850. If fully funded this fundraiser will ensure medicines for 12 children for 12 months. The medicines will be bought and assigned to some of the more critical children, those with chronic needs and rare conditions.
