IRC donates relief material
Srinagar, Feb 7: The Indian Red Cross Society donated relief material and wheel chairs to the differently able children in a health camp held at Boniyar Uri in north Kashmir.
The health camp was organized by CRY Fellow Ambreen Bashir with the support from IRCS Srinagar and HOPE disability Center Baramulla at Primary health Center, Boniyar.
“The purpose of the camp was to assess the quantum of disability and steps taken to improve their functional mobility either through surgical intervention, physiotherapy or by counseling of parents,” she said.
The occupational therapist HOPE Disability Nahid Pandit said that therapy would be given to them on weekly and training would be given to their parents also because our motive was to make them independent and stay healthy.
