A wheely deal for Rishab

A new wheelchair increases Rishab's access to learning, and brings a sigh of relief for his mother.

“I am so relieved to get the wheelchair for Rishab,” shared his mother.

Even at 11 years old, Rishab’s mother used to carry him from place to place because of his limited mobility. She said, “as he grows older, it is getting very difficult for me to carry him all the time.”

Settling into the new chair, provided with the support of IndusInd Bank, was not a smooth transition. The chair felt unfamiliar compared to the comfort of his mother. The Perkins India team guided Rishab’s family to slowly introduce the wheelchair so Rishab could become more comfortable with it.

Now, Rishab can sit joyfully in the chair and is happy to be taken out — opening a world of possibilities for him to have easier access to the world around him and more opportunities for learning.
