Disabled children shine through

DNIS News Network -- Physically challenged children from Meerut and Chandigarh were honoured in the Capital for their achievements.

Several physically challenged children of Roshini, a Chandigarh-based organisation and Nai Aasha, a Meerut-based organisation, were recently honoured at the library hall of Sacred Heart Cathedral by Archbishop Vincent Concesoa.

Not succumbing to the pressures of physical deformities, these children have fought their way through to lead a healthy and respectable life in society.

Father Anthony proudly told the audience that all ten children studying in standard X of Nai Aasha secured first division in their exams, which was well above the pass percentage of other schools that had refused them admission.
