A NOTE FROM THE PRESIDENT
It gives me immense happiness to present the Twentieth annual report of HCRA to you. The twenty years journey has seen grow from a fledgling organization to one that is recognized nationally for its work in disability area.
Any NGO working in the field of child welfare must always be braced to deal with the unexpected and to solve what seem like insurmountable problem and HCRA is no exception. A critically ill infant fighting for survival, a toddler, malnourished and neglected by its parents because both must work all day to feed their family; a mentally challenged child crying out for care and therapy, a bright and hardworking child too poor to pay for school education let alone private tuition, a very special child with cerebral palsy desperately seeking medical intervention and rehabilitation services, a down syndrome child reeling under the yoke of discrimination with respect of health, education and nutrition within her own family-these are only a few of the everyday challenges that HCRA has made it its mission to take up. And it is with a sense of pride and satisfaction that I can say that HCRA team has done just that with remarkable success this past year despite the shortage of funds that continues to beleaguered us.
Even than HCRA given the high quality of care involved – medical & rehabilitation services to the children with disabilities under one roof in Delhi NCR as well as Dehradun and Mumbai also.
The Rehabilitation services and the Vocational training programme continue to be regarded as standard bearers in their particular fields, receiving laudatory recognition from parents of beneficiaries, donors & well wishers alike.
It’s never a dull day, month or year at HCRA…
We know that HCRA’s achievements have been possible because all of you are with us to encourage the efforts we make towards our mission to empower children with disability.
