Heard about this SL social service org - Navajeevana recently. From their site:
"We have been working to rehabilitate people with disabilities in southern Sri Lanka for over twenty years. Our vision is to see people with disabilities as equal and participating members of a non-discriminatory society.
We provide a holistic service for people with disabilities and work with the “whole” person—from early identification, intervention, treatment and full rehabilitation, where the person is able to earn an independent income.
At our fully accessible rehabilitation centre in Tangalla we provide a range of paramedical services, including physiotherapy, prosthetics and orthotics, speech therapy, supportive seating, wheelchair production, audiological services and physiotherapy. We also run four special schools for disabled children, carry out community mental heath work and work in and with the community to rehabilitate people with disabilities."
For a lot more about the org, visit Navajeevana's site.
