Mumbai: Eight-year-old Yash Chaudhri from Mumbai was one among the many disabled waiting for an extension to their unstable foot, before crowdfunding helped him with prosthetic limbs. There are scores of children born with disability who can ill-afford to get themselves treated. And that’s where crowd funding provides a ray of hope to them and parents, assisted by NGOs.
Rajiv Mehta, trustee of NGO Ratna Nidhi, which helped Yash’s family said, “He (Yash) was very confident about his abilities. He got engrossed in books, thought he was just like anybody else and did not want anybody to pity him for his condition. That’s how all people with disabilities are.”
