Mr. A. Haidar Ali S/o AbdulKadar is a differently abled person and he became a physically handicapped due to polio attack. His disability percentage is 65%. He is studied +2 and is living with his parents. He is working in self employment and earning Rs.3,000 per month. His father is a mat weaving and the family is in poor economic conditions. Mr. Kaidar Ali wanted to reach the bus station Vandavasi town (in away from 2 kms.) to attend a job. So, he needed a tricycle. As he came to know that our NGO is distributing tricycles to the physically handicapped persons, he approached our NGO and based on his poor economic situation, we donated the new tricycle to him on 3rd May 2012. The tricycle is very much useful to him and it helps him to reach his working place on time. He expressed his sincere thanks to ASSCOD for this timely help.
