Vinisha returns to the world of sound
Thrissur: The world will not be silent for Vinisha anymore. Manappuram Foundation has stepped forward to help painter Vinisha. They have handed over a hearing aid worth Rs 1 lakh to her.
Vinisha is the daughter of Peringottukara natives Chandran and Sheeja. Although she lost her hearing ability after being infected by pneumonia soon after birth, she has proved herself as a painter and an origami artist. The family was distressed after they could not replace the damaged hearing aid which she used earlier, due to financial difficulties.
Manappuram Foundation managing trustee VP Nandakumar and his wife Sushama Nandakumar volunteered to help Vinisha and her family after reading about the news in Mathrubhumi. The Foundation also offered help to organize an exhibition of Vinisha’s paintings. The hearing aid was handed over at a function conducted at Manappuram Foundation's office.
Sushama Nandakumar, CEO George D Das, Sanoj Herbertt, Subhash Ravi and Shilpa Sebastian took part in the ceremony. Social worker Jayan Bose took the initiative to obtain a hearing aid of the highest quality.
