National Cerebral Palsy Day Event
Posted On: 04-Oct-2015
On Sunday, 4th October 2015, on occasion of National Cerebral Palsy Day, we had a very beautiful and colourful event - Connect the K-nots - held on Nanavati Hospital Premises in association with Indian Academy of Cerebral Palsy (IACP). Dr. Rujuta Mehta (Consultant - Pediatrics Orthopedics, NSSH) was the National Coordinator from IACP and the event was organized in five locations - on 3rd October, three events concluded at Highstreet Phoenix, Vashi and Thane, while on 4th October events were scheduled at Oberoi Mall and Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital.
At Nanavati Hospital, the event started at 7 am and continued till 2 pm, with ten schools (students and art teachers) and ten centres (coordinators and cerebral palsy patients) participating to create Ten Colourful Canvas Paintings based on the theme "Barriers to Accessibility for Cerebral Palsy Individuals and their inclusion in main stream." Besides, Mr. Haresh Mehta – an artist, an entrepreneur and a cancer survivor – with his cardboard creations developed economic friendly affordable ramps for those who are wheel chair bound and also contributed the easels for the canvas.
We thank Dr. Rujuta Mehta for all her efforts and Prajakti Shirsekar for the entire event coordiantion.
All the Ten Canvases are displayed in hospital for a week for any one who would like to appreciate the art.
The event was covered in media as attached to the mail. Below are links for the online coverage.
