New Delhi, February 22: Basing a strong future for the children and youth of the country, the Indian Air Force has organized Paralympics events for special kids in Delhi. The objective of organizing this event is to encourage every child especially the disabled children to boost their confidence.
Devika Harikumar, President of the WAC Air Force Wives Welfare Association said that the idea is to inculcate a sense of social being among kids, grooming them to take care of their daily requirements, developing their motor skills, and above all, training them to participate in national and international-level Paralympic Games.
She emphasized on saying that the country lacks in providing the opportunities and infrastructure for the development of these special children. Adding to this she said that these children are given different treatment in India and abroad.
Organising Paralympics is our effort to make those children happy and convey to them that we care and are standing behind them at every step that they take on their own. IAF officers confirmed that once the event is organized at the command level, it would then be held at the national level so that differently abled children from all across the service can come and participate.
