During one of our visits to Kosovo, we made some home visits to assess how some people with paralysis are coping at home. At one home we were introduced to a young lady named Nerxhivan Berisha who had fallen and suffered a severe back injury.
She is unable to walk and is cared for by her parents.
During our visit her father shared with us the difficulty they have in bringing Nerxhivan down and out of the house to take her to her medical appointments. He said a wheelchair ramp would make things much easier and safer, but they could not afford to have one constructed.
We were able to provide the funding for the project. HandiKos provided the on-scene coordination to make this ramp a reality in a timely manner and within the budget.
