Making an ATM Accessibility Friendly as a part of our initiation Accessibility Friendly Cities
It was indeed a great achievement for WOW Foundation by making an ATM Accessibility Friendly. For many days, I have been facing lot of problem in accessing my Andhra Bank ATM near Meerpet Chowrasta. When I initially approached the bank officials and requested to construct a ramp near ATM. They said, they don’t have funds to provide such facility.
I really wonder their CSR commitment and customer support. Then I posted my problem in Facebook and asked my friends to help. Immediately many friends like Ravi Kumar, Praveen Kumar Machavaram, Suheim Sheikh, Jahangir Shaik, Ranjeet Tayi, Preeti Pooja responded and shared the problem in thier social media profiles. Gangadhara Tilak Katnam of Shramadhaan NGO who is known as Potholes Doctor came forward and constructed the ramp by evening 6:00 PM. I thank for immediate support of TV5 crew to cover the event and support the cause. Ultimately it proved that when a noble intention is supported by socially conscious individuals, it can turn into a movement to pave new way. Today, many people with different disabilities struggle to get access to many public places. We thank Shramadaan for support.
