I am so happy to see my son Ali sit and talk to us. He was not able to talk or sit by himself. With therapy Ali got head control and GiftAbled provided the magic chair to my son. He loves to sit in it and watch TV and paly with his brothers and sisters. Thank you - says Mohammed Wazid , father of Ali who is auto driver by profession.”
Mohammed Thouqif is our only son among three daughters. He is very intelligent but he cannot stand or walk by himself. He kept asking me appa when will I stand or can I even stand. He used to go to various therapies but nobody said he can stand and then I came across Jeeva maam who said, of course he can experience standing and supported us with standing and sitting chair. I am so happy that I could fulfil his dreams. Now I drop him to school in my auto and we can carry the frame to school too. He is so happy to be standing in his PT class along with his friends. Thank you - says Mohammed thouqif’s father, auto driver at Tiruvallur District”

My son was not able to respond to our voice, then when we showed to the doctors at age of 6 months, they told us that our child cannot hear. My wife died when our son was six months old, I was shattered left with no family and money, couldn’t afford single day meal. I could not even think of getting a hearing aid for my child and food was more important. I work as laborer in Pune and my sister took care of our son. Thanks to our therapist Nirakar and Sadanand who offered to help my son. I really don’t know how to thank them, there are no words, they gave him hearing aid and thought my sister speech activities. Today he goes to school and speaks to me over the phone. I wanted to end my life, thanks to god, my sister, therapists am where I and my son are today - says Sumit’s father Sudarshan.”
My family and community thought our daughter is a God’s curse. I was waiting and hoping for some help and luckily I met Swagathika Mishra who came home during a field visit and helped us understand. Despite a lot of restrictions from our family, I believed in her and went for therapy. They helped our child with operation and thought us how to feed the child, exercises and speech therapy activities . Now my child can eat on her own, started to speak few words. I thank my therapist and doctor who have made my belief true and today I tell all the other people in my villages that it is not curse from god, our children can be like others - says Yamuna Gouda mother of Arun Gouda.”
Bhumika is my only granddaughter among my 17 grandsons and I love her to death. We were shattered when we found out that she had a disability, thanks to wonderful therapists and doctor who helped us understand about Bhumika’s difficulties and thought us about therapies. Today when I see my girl walk and hear her call me “Je je ma” I feel like a proud grandmother and it is best feeling says Bhumika’s grandmother.”
