Under special needs, Humanity 365 is supporting various causes which provide special attention to the disabled. It is estimated that 1.5% of the population under 19 years has some kind of disability. And 35.29% of all people living with disabilities are children. These individuals usually have living and learning difficulties and needs special attention. Unless the disabled are provided with necessary support in the initial years, especially during childhood, it is very difficult to join them in the mainstream.
Many disabled experience apathy from their families and poverty makes it worse. What they need is emotional support and special attention. NGOs have been doing exemplary work in supporting and educating the disabled besides creating massive awareness and sensitization. NGOs are running schools which equipped with trained teaching staff and the right kind of environment to educate these children.
Apart from special education many NGOs (with active support) are distributing equipment to physically handicapped persons such as leg braces, Braille/talking books, glasses, hearing aids, tricycles for transport etc. Equipment of this kind is one time support but it changes the lives of these individuals. You can certainly make a difference in many ways in the lives of disabled by contributing to various causes supporting them. However small is your gesture, it will make a large difference in the lives of these people.
