I am extremely happy to publish today the first pictures received from Samantha, our current OT volunteer in Kullu, of the wooden chairs designed for Aastha and Chanderkiran, two children who have been following rehabilitation therapy sessions in Manali since a few months.


Thanks to the close cooperation between our two OTs, Shruti and Samantha, and the designs left by our first volunteer, Evert, we have been able to provide these special chairs to Aastha's and Chandrakiran's parents last Thursday, during the therapy sessions in Manali.

Aastha in her new special wooden chair, which still needs a coat of paint or varnish
but she already looks happy and ready to take greater part in family life!

Quite a new experience for Chanderkiran!
but surely a great relief to his mother
and a whole new range of sensation, stimulation and interaction
possibilities for this young CP boy

Both chairs were made by a very special carpenter, Pana Lal (and his son Fateh), of Dhungri village - very special carpenters indeed as this family, since many generations, is a family of "royal carpenters" in charge of the renovation of Hadimba temple.


So, thousands thanks to this very special team in Kullu and Manali!

(and by the way, exactly three years ago on 9 September 2009, we officially inaugurated the Handimachal Unit in Kullu - remember this Evert?)

I am so happy to see these pictures. I remember Aashta, she was new in the unit just before I left almost 1,5 years ago (can't believe it has been that long by the way) and I recommended for the
family to have a chair made for her. It stood very clear how much she would benefit from it, and here we have the evidence. Lovely!
