Wings of Angelz is a social initiative that aims to make the world wheel chair friendly. It was founded by the Kalra sisters (Ruchika & Shobhika) January 2014.
Shobhika is like every other 20 something year old girl - Young and excited about life ahead ! The only difference between her and every other person is the fact that she has degenerative disorder , Fredreich’s Ataxia. It sets in at the early teenage years and eventually weakens all the muscles of the body . She was diagnosed with this disorder at the age of 13 and has been wheel chair bound for the last 8 years . She doesn’t let this come in the way of her ambitions and zest for life . She independently travels with the metro to work every day , runs a beauty blog , completed her masters in psychology and is a hard-core Kareena Kapoor Fan . However , what makes her life challenging , is the difficulty in accessing places due to the lack of proper infrastructure.
To create awareness about this and support organisations to become accessible,Wings Of Angelz was set up. Some of their close friends jumped to help and they had a logo , a few facebook followers and some tshirts printed . This was only the start of the journey . Soon enough, they had immense support in different forms from various people and organisations across the globe. The initiative is in line with Sheikh Mohammed’s vision of making Dubai disabled friendly by 2020. Today , Wings Of Angelz has successfully managed to :
We are a fun team guided by a unique set of principles and values. We are passionate about enhancing the lives of wheelchair users by building awareness and go to great lengths to build more ramps.
