Friends, good news! A 12 year old boy from Coonoor, son of a roadside cap seller at Ooty market, suffering from Spastic triplegia who was unable to move around or stand, unable to straighten his knees, but otherwise very attentive, has been taking 3 months treatment from the very competent physiotherapist Mr.Venketesh sent by Mr. Clement of Kinder Trust, has shown remarkable improvement. From 180 degrees to 0 ! We aim to make him first walk with a walker and send him to a hostel / school as per his wishes. He wants to make news paper bags to while his time now. Poor child, the physiotherapist said he screamed and cried with pain during the sessions, but kept telling the physiotherapist to go ahead as he really wants to walk …. Just can’t wait to see it .

Manigandan and Puspa

This couple Manigandan and Puspa are from Uppatty near Gudalur, Nilgiris, were found at the Nilgiris collector’s office by Mr.Satyamoorthy (of the Hindu) while the couple was giving a petition for self employment loan and for a vehicle to the collector.
Manigandan was born after his father passed away, he was brought up by his grandmother and his uncle and studied in Erode. While working in Tiruppur in a factory he went for a training to Pondicherry, there he met Puspa who is partially blind, they fell in love and got married 5 months ago.
Unfortunately, Manigandan was advised by the doctor, not to work in Tiruppur as he was allergic to textile dust and had started wheezing. Hence, Manigandan had to come back to Gudalur. As of now he is without as job and wanted the collector to help him so that he is not a burden on anybody.
At the collectors office they were asked to meet the concerned Department officer and to go to his office, but they did not have the money for an auto to go there, they had only enough money to return back to Gudalur, so they could not go to meet the department officer. It was touching to see Pushpa carry her husband like a child and walking although she herself cannot see.
Kinder Trust along with Mr.Satyamoorthy are helping them financially and to assist them get the Aawin milk booth assured by the collector along with a vehicle. Those willing to help this couple in any way, may please get in touch with Kinder Trust at 9880433711 or 8903769949
