Dear Friends of the Poor,
Greetings to you ALL from CEED,
Greetings and good wishes from CEED, India, It gives us an immense pleasure of making contact with you at the moment and to get ourselves introduced. Centre for Education and Economic Development (CEED) is a non government voluntary organization which has been working for the holistic development of the poor and marginalized since its inception in the year 1998. The major thrust areas of CEED are empowering toiling women who are being distressingly exploited in terms of socio-economical, health and political aspects, abolition of child labour, prevention and combating HIV/AIDS, creating livelihood opportunities for women and youth through promoting entrepreneurial skills, conservation of environment and promoting quality education among socially deprived and backward class people. The reason why I am writing to you this time is that we need to expand our services to the more beneficiaries who are in desperate need of getting any sort of assistance and are leading hand to mouth living conditions.

An orphan girl in an Orphan Home whom I know since her birth who borne with out all 4 limbs and left on the road by her mother 14 years ago. Somebody on the road side brought her to this orphan home and handed over to them. I did ILIZAROV FOR her upper limb stumps and could gain some length and now she is ready for fitting upper limbs and lower limbs prosthesis.
Now she is an adolescent shy girl with all her physical needs to be addressed independently. She is very eager to have the limbs especially the upper limbs as she need to maintain personal cleanliness and for independent eating purposes .
Yu can watch her writing nicely with chin to pen type of writing and now she is 8th standard.she would like to become a teacher in the future .
Pls help her financially and technologically to give her at least a reasonably functioning upper limbs to take care of her daily routine and writing work to become a teacher to support livelihood .

We showed her the maid (with whom STELLA came here) and again Immandi was asking “how do you write and eat ? Stella showed her how she was writing and entered 8th std .
