Anbu Raju strolled into our centre with a request for a wheelchair. He comes from a small village in the state of Tamil Nadu, this place is often known as the land of the swaying coconut palms. Farmers in that region sell these coconuts for their daily bread. However, this means of survival can also turn out to be fatal. Who knew, that one such incident would happen to our friend- AnbuRaj, a victim of coconuts falling on his head.
Anbu manages a chemical factory , so every morning he walks past a groove of coconut trees to reach his factory. Unfortunately, a year ago, a coconut fell on his head- this resulted in a head injury , this gradually developed weakness in both his legs.
Despite the fact of this fatal accident, he teaches children, conducts medical camps and counselling sessions at that village. When I asked him, how the wheelchair would help, this is what he said – ” Now I can go visit many houses in my village and help them with their needs.”
We at proVISION ASIA hope that Anbu would be a blessing at his village as he continues to serve his friends and neighbors.
