Minneapolis South Rotary helps to provide transportation to disabled in India


Physically disabled people in the Andhra Pradesh region of India now have personal transportation, thanks to a project that provided 290 hand-crank tricycles to those in need.

The project was supported financially by the Minneapolis South Rotary Club, with member Dr. Karin Treiber taking the lead. “

“The project gave a boost to the beneficiaries by restoring their dignity and self-respect through independent mobility,” said the final report submitted by the Rotary Club of Kothagudem. “They now do not have to depend on others for their mobility and livelihood and, in the process, live a better life with esteem.”
