About Handi-Care Intl. Handi-Care Intl.
Handi-Care Intl. (HCI) was born as an off-shoot of a major undertaking by 2 extraordinary young men, S. Ramakrishnan
& Sankara Raman, who in spite of their own disabilities, were able to create a community for other disabled individuals.
Their unflinching commitment to empower these individuals lead to building an organization that educates,
rehabilitates & trains disabled individuals to become independent & employable. The center they have built – Amar
Seva Sangam (ASSA) is an unique establishment that offers rehab work for over 600 villages in rural, developing areas
in Tamil Nadu, India. Learn more about ASSA.
Handi-Care Intl. was founded as a Canadian registered charity in 1992 by Sulo Krishnamurthy, who took a keen interest in helping Amar Seva Sangam develop and to take on similar other projects for helping the poor and needy. Since then, HCI has grown and expanded its wings to reach out to other organizations as well.
