Prathyasha Foundation to conduct Mass wedding for 50 physically challenged

Kochi: At least 50 physically challenged persons, belonging to poor families, will take wedding vows at a function here on May 25.

The marriage is being solemnised by the Prathyasha Foundation, a trust formed by the disabled persons.

An orchestra group of the disabled artists would be launched the same day at Ernakulam town hall, a foundation press release said.

The foundation also had plans to organise 14 marriage meets for the handicapped pesons in each district of the state.

A pre-marital meet for the disabled had been held at the town hall on December 3 last year on 'World Disabled day' in which more than 5000 people participated. At least 100 persons had selected their life partners from the meet.
