Our last year's fundraiser was focused on raising funds to build an "Early Intervention Centre" for children born with developmental issues, such as Cerebral palsy, Autism, Downs syndrome and the like. The early intervention rehab is provided free of charge to rural poor families at Amar Seva Sangam in India, by well trained and qualified professionals. Please click here to see some of the rehab activities. This year, we will focus on:


  1. Sponsoring as many of the 200 or so children waiting to enroll in to the program.
  2. Enable hiring of additional qualified therapists to offer rehab therapies.
  3. Purchase adaptive equipments to enable quality therapy.

OT /PT Students from McGill University, Montreal had successfully completed their 2 month clinical placements at Amar Seva sangan, facilitated by handi-Care Intl. Please click here to read about their experience and see the photos.
We accept applications all year round for volunteer and clinical placements. Please visit www.handicareintl.org/volunteer
