KATHMANDU, Nepal--(BUSINESS WIRE)--G. P. Trading Concern, national distributor of Opple LED lighting in Nepal, initiated a noble cause this April 2016. On behalf of the entire company, a group of 16 employees decided to visit Hospital and Rehabilitation Centre for Disabled Children (HRDC), a leading hospital with specialization in orthopedic and reconstructive surgery, treatment of cerebral palsy and management of spine problems.
This rehabilitation center caters treatment for physically-challenged and differently-abled children below the age of 16. More than 70% of the currently admitted 82 patients at this hospital are from the remotest areas of Nepal and cannot afford such expensive surgeries. To support this Rehabilitation Centre, G. P. Trading Concern did something truly amazing. The team funded the surgery of a 14-year-old girl, Manisha, who currently cannot walk or move. After the surgery and with the help of assistive devices designed especially for her, Manisha would soon be on her feet and be doing everything that a normal human does. The dream of the team to make a permanent change in the life of one needy child shall soon come true.
The day at HRDC did not end here; the team surprised the kids by handing over goodie-bags, toys and chocolates, and having lunch together with the kids. The team also added a little more colour into their lives by installing an LED TV and sound system at the play therapy zone of the hospital.
