We Do Act for Persons with Disabilities
In this second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have identified that people with disabilities are facing more challenges than any other person. The persons diagnosed with locomotive disorder, muscular dystrophy, spinal cord injury and so forth are not able to get adequate physical engagement like therapies or even assistance in day to day activities results in physical issues such as bed sores and mental issues like anxiety, stress, depression.
