As a Rehab physician i am always looking for ways to help those who are physically challenged. HelpHandicap foundation has been a model non profit organization that serves the needs in this area. The passion to serve in this very challenging area of service and charity is outstanding in its founder member and all those involved with this charity.This is an A+ non profit. I would volunteer and donate to its cause, as i have been, without any hesitation.
