12 Feb BBC Radio 4 appeal to support INF
INF will feature as the BBC Radio 4 charity appeal of the week on Sunday 18th February.
Our appeal will be presented by Anne Wafula Strike (pictured above), a Paralympian and disability rights advocate who has long been a supporter of INF.
Anne will share the story of Parbati (pictured) who was left paralysed in 2019 after falling from a tree while collecting food for her family’s goats.
She couldn’t get herself out of bed and was totally dependent on her husband. She couldn’t look after her two children, or even go to the toilet on her own.
INF Nepal provided Parbati with her first wheelchair and adapted her home to help restore her independence and dignity. She can now once again play a full part in family and community life.
