She is in her prime year but cannot speak, dress up, attend school, or work. She can only lie in bed and needs special care from her family for her daily life.

20-year-old Raajeswari A/P Vadiveloo suffered from a lack of oxygen in the brain at birth and was diagnosed with spastic cerebral palsy. She can’t speak, and her hands are bent. Her intelligence, vision, hearing, language and motor skills also deteriorate from time to time.

As Raajeswari grows up, her mother, who used to work in a factory, quits her job to care for her daughter, who cannot take care of herself. She changes her daughter’s diapers and feeds her milk. Currently, Raajeswari needs four diapers daily and drinks three packets of milk powder monthly.

Raajeswari’s father works in a factory with a monthly salary of RM2,500. They have two other children – their eldest son just graduated from university and is currently pursuing his internship in a transportation company. Their youngest child is still in secondary school.

Although the parents engaged services from a physiotherapist to help massage their daughter, hoping to improve her health, the doctor informed her that it didn’t work. Hence, the parents stopped the physiotherapy treatment.

And now, Raajeswari's parents must carry her and put her in the car when she needs to go to the hospital for follow-up visits. She needs a unique cushion to sit properly in a wheelchair at the hospital.

After reviewing the case following a home visit, One Hope Charity was sympathetic to the needs of Raajeswari and her family. One Hope Charity decided to sponsor her with a special wheelchair to ease the burden of her parents caring for her. To reduce the family's financial burden, One Hope Charity's volunteer also handed over some dry food and rice to Raajeswari's family during the home visit.
