SAMUHA is an NGO based out of Kanakagiri district, Karnataka state, India. Since 1989, it has worked with disabled people through its Community Based Rehabilitation programme called SAMARTHYA. The SAMARTHYA CBR-D programme presently works with a range of disabilities including locomotor, cerebral palsy, mental retardation, hearing impairment, visual impairment and mental illness. SAMARTHYA opened Orthotic & Prosthotic, Ear Mould Production and Hearing Aid Repair & Maintenance workshops in Deodurg, Raichur and Koppal districts, providing services to people from neighbouring districts as well. Beneficiaries are identified during the village disability screenings, at weekly clinics and in self help group meetings. There are also referrals from other NGOs, hospitals and government departments for services around the year. Each beneficiary is assessed to ascertain the need, based on which the NGO tries to raise donations and seeks grants from donor agencies, Govt. etc. As per the individual's specific need the appliance will be fitted at the aids and appliances production centres run by the organization. This donation option helps us provide a disabled person with a VISSCO wheelchair with puncture-proof tyres, metal brakes, adjustable foot-rest, foldable arm-rests, special pressure-relief cushion and other features. The NGO buys the chairs and customizes them for the beneficiary. At times the chairs are bought in bulk while at others a few chairs are bought based on the donations received. The chairs are delivered to the Koppal workshop from where they are delivered to the beneficiary.
