TURNING DISABILITY INTO ABILTY & WOMEN EMPOWERMENT PROGRAMME
By the Grace of the Almighty, KORT has again delivered on our two key programmes: ‘Turning Disability into Ability’ and ‘Womens Empowerment’. Team KORT and other prominent figures distributed hundreds of Sewing Machines & hundreds of Wheelchairs, in the Rawalakot district of Poonch, AJK.
Thank you to Mr Hassan Ibrahim (MLA Govt of AJK), Sardar Shazaib Khan (CEO) Gulf Empire, and members of the civil society and media personnel, whom were all at hand to help distribute the items and delivered inspiring and uplifting speeches to the local benefactors.
When a wheelchair is gifted to these blessed people, we don’t just simply hand it over to them. At KORT we believe that a Wheelchair is prone to damage as well as common/major wear and tear. Hence why a wheelchair which has been donated through KORT is a wheelchair for life-meaning all they need to do when their wheelchair needs replacing is to get into contact with KORT and a replacement wheelchair shall be provided by KORT free of charge.
The current cost of a Wheelchair is £65 each and a Sewing Machine is £35 each.
If you put together £100, you can pay for a package of 1 Wheelchair and 1 Sewing Machine for the needy people of Azad Kashmir.
