I have not come across any other organization that helps the people with disabilities in a way that EquallyAble (HelpHandicap) does. I have personally witnessed the help it provides to the needy with a passionate desire. I would recommend everyone to know more about the worked performed by the organization and support in any way possible.
There are very few organizations working for this specific cause. Taking up this cause to help less able people is a result of determination and huge/sincere commitment. The organization does this with zeal and is present in many community events that helps the deserving and also organize funds. I have known the organizers, both on US (specifically in Michigan area) and India where the organization has effectively worked with many individuals. The direct involvement and sincerity for the cause is noteworthy of the organization.
