Story


Support "Wheeling Happiness" to help physically challenged people and minority

 

The harsh impact of COVID-19 is known worldwide. It has spared no one, from rags to riches. Though some people might be able to fight its impact because of their financial and social background, many are left searching for even necessities like food and shelter. The specially-abled community is also facing the wrath of COVID, unable to find support, money or ration on their own. The community needs the support of privileged people such as us who are locked-down at home without worrying about tomorrow's meal. 

Let us all pledge our allegiance towards those in need and extend our token of help in any way we can. 

 

#BeTheirSupport

Wheeling Happiness is working for the welfare of the society, especially the physically and mentally challenged people and orphans and widows. While we are doing the best we can to provide them with daily necessity kits and ration, we would be needing help in raising more funds to reach as many people as we can and help them survive this crisis. 

 

About Wheeling Happiness

Wheeling Happiness foundation is the brainchild of co-founders Deepa Malik (Padmashri, Khel Ratna, Arjuna Awardee) & Devika Malik (Forbes 30 - Under 30, Psychological Counsellor, Queen Elizabeth II, Vice-President of India & United Nations awardee for community service). Deepa Malik has been paralyzed below chest for the past 2 decades and Devika has gone through hemiplegia, which causes paralysis to one side of the body. The mother-daughter duo has overcome the challenges of their own disabilities to become international para-athletes and disability inclusion advocates. Having faced the challenges of disability first-hand, they established Wheeling Happiness Foundation, which promotes inclusion, disability sports, raises funds for people with disabilities and promotes better access and equality for those facing physical, emotional and social challenges, to wheel happiness into their lives.

The foundation has impacted over 10,000 lives, Distributed more than 500 accessibility aides and advocated for the rights of people with disabilities at the United Nations & Commonwealth.

While we continue to distribute prepared meals to daily wager families, we are prioritizing the needs of the specially-abled community by channelizing resources to help them. While they need their medical kits and aids, the need of the hour for them is basic food rations and household essential commodities. We request you to support our cause and do your part to be inclusive of people with disabilities in the time of this unprecedented crisis. In such uncertain times, it is the strength and resilience of the civic society coming together to unify all efforts towards relief aid. With your contributions, we will be able to underprivileged families of people with disabilities.


With your support, we are distributing 5000 prepared meals to out-of-work migrant workers of the various cities during the lockdown.


We are also extending our support to families for rations, hygiene kits, and medical & menstrual hygiene essentials like adult diapers & sanitary napkins to all those families with disabled family members. 


To extend our reach to as many people in need as possible, we are also extending financial support to other NGOs diligently working towards helping people with disabilities, women & migrant workers during this unprecedented time. 


Do your part by helping us to raise this money that will be channeled towards the well being of people with disabilities, orphans, migrant workers, the people that are the hardest hit by the effects of this pandemic!
