Hyundai Motor India gives assistive devices to disabled

Hyundai Motor India Ltd (HMIL) has  distributed 72 technologically advanced assistive devices, including hearing aids, wheelchairs and bionic limbs, to disabled people in partnership with an NGO as part of its social initiative "Samarth by Hyundai".

  HMIL plans to provide a total of 684 such devices over three years to aid mobility, vision, hearing and communication of the disabled under the programme run by the Hyundai Motor India Foundation (HMIF) and Samarthanam Trust for the Disabled.

  The first "Samarth Assistive Devices Conclave" hosted by HMIL saw panel discussions on enabling inclusion through assistive technology, challenges around disability in India and investment in technologies for para sports.

  "We aim to create a more inclusive society and ease the way of living for people with disabilities in India," Tarun Garg, chief operating officer at HMIL, told the event.

  The automaker said its global vision of "Progress for Humanity" was aligned with the initiative to empower the disabled.

  Mahantesh G Kivadasannavar, founder of Samarthanam Trust, said the collaboration created "an inclusive society where technology and compassion converge to enhance the lives of people with disabilities".
