DONATE-for Provision of Assistive Devices, essential medication & commodities, Assam

.The central promise of Sustainable Development Goals 2016-30 to ‘Leave no one behind is truly tested in times of floods and disasters. Assam being a flood-prone region, because of natural and human causes, continues to be reeled by yet another devastating flood. This time, however, we can come together to help Persons with disabilities retain their dignity of life by the provision of rehabilitation support.

Why focus on PWD during floods?

The Assam floods have not only had a toll on life, and property but have increased the number of persons with disabilities and those with newly acquired disabilities. PWDs are more likely to be left behind or abandoned during evacuation in disasters like floods due to a lack of preparation and planning, inaccessible facilities and services, and transportation systems. Disruption to physical, social, economic, and environmental networks and support systems affects persons with disabilities much more than the general population. There is also a potential for discrimination on the basis of disability when resources are scarce. Thus, there is an urgent need for rehabilitation support like the provision of assistive products, replacement of damaged or repaired devices, medical check-ups, and medicines in order to prevent the possibility of the outbreak of communicable diseases.

Where?

Bhurbandha, Mayong, and Kapili blocks of Morigaon, Assam is identified as the area for intervention. 

What will Mobility India do?

With the rising need and expectations, Mobility India being a pioneer in rehabilitation service provision shall respond to the people affected by floods, and act to minimize the suffering of people with disabilities and the elderly population by providing the priority assistive devices to restore mobility as an immediate solution to cope better with the emergency and thereafter.

Where will your contribution be utilized? 

It is only by coming together that we can help families get through this, and we must act now.  We need your urgent support.  Please give to our Assam flood Emergency appeal.
