Thank you for a very successful event...

WALKATHON - 2016 on Sunday, MAY 29, 2016

It was a beautiful warm summer day and Erindale park, missisauga was buzzing with walkers, strollers and wheelchairs for Handi-Care Intl. The day was filled with fun activities for children, adults and volunteers... Please click here to view the photos. You are welcome to download any of the photos of your liking.

We take this opportunity to thank everyone immensely for your support which will go towards assisting children with disability in rural South India. We have raised a little over $20,000 and with that we can help the complete care and rehabilitation of several disabled children in the Early Intervention program at Amar Seva Sangam. Please take a look at the children on the waiting list.

Handi-Care Intl. has started a new initiative to help children in Ontario with Cerebral Palsy undergo a special treatment and surgery called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR). The SDR surgery and subsequent intensive rehabilitation reduces spasticity in children, improving their comfort, transitions and often allowing them to walk for the first time. 3 children requiring SDR and their families attended our Walkathon and this partnership has created a lot of awareness and goodwill between Handi-Care and the local community. Please feel free to donate towards the rehabilitation costs of these 3 children who will be undergoing SDR.

Your donation is fully tax deductible and your generosity will make a visible difference in our local community.

Many thanks to all our volunteers, who pitched in with event planning and execution. Our Development committee members did a fabulous job of organizing different activities for the children who were happy to have their faces painted, get henna tattoos and crazy hair designs. We take special pride in mentioning Ms. Sindhu Suppiah's leadership in arranging dhol playing starting the walk off with a bang and our committee member's initiative in arranging young children playing instruments along the path..

A very special thanks goes to our food volunteers who got up at 3 am to cook delicious breakfast.
