By providing a limb to a child we help them get back to their school and take part in educational and sports activities. They are better able to reintegrate into society. We must create better awareness as there is a social stigma when you go through an amputation or when you have a partially developed limb in Sri Lanka. People attribute it to past Karma, and all kinds of weird mumbo jumbo which marginalizes such a person and access to normal facilities is limited. Our greatest challenge is to change the mindset of society, to accept every person differently abled and allow them access to all facilities available to all of us normally.
If you can come up with a media campaign to at least change the mindset of the young generation, we can have an inclusive society with equal opportunities. This is what we humbly request from everyone.
