In September, Shah Rukh had attended Paralympic Committee of India (CPI) send-off for Indian para-athletes at Asian Para Games 2018 with Deepa Malik (first Indian woman to win a medal in Paralympic Games).
Shah Rukh Khan said, ‘It has been a privilege knowing and associating with Deepa Malik for cause as virtuous as this. She is not just an inspiration to many but also a reflection of ourselves as we all are incomplete in one way or the other, it only depends how we embrace our imperfections and achieve our goals. Felicitating the upcoming Para-athletes in our step towards achieving the dream of representing India at the Paralympic’.
Deepa Malik has been actively involved in motivating Para-athletes, she is co-founder of “Wheeling Happiness Foundation”.
Deepa said, ‘It is an extremely gracious step by Shah Rukh Khan’s “Meera Foundation” to extend their support to Wheeling Happiness to enable the para-athletes as not only facilitates them but also motivates and boosts their confidence’.
The Meera Foundation has also provided support to various acid attack survivors and extended aid to those affected by deluge in Kerala.
