Wheelchair assistance for disabled at doorstep

The service was launched earlier this month and has got a good response. South Mumbai resident Yogesh Shah has limited mobility due to motor neuron disease and used this facility. “I had to go for a family function and got all the support I needed from this service. I was happy with the quality of support provided”.
Many disabled people stay in buildings that have no lifts and need a wheelchair and a professional caretaker who can take them down the stairs safely. We are catering to all types of requests like a visit to the park, wedding, mall, hospital, etc. We also offer this assistance to disabled people who want to make trips out of town. – Ravindra Singh, Founder, myUDAAN
