World Disabled Day was celebrated by visiting each and every special institution in the state of Odisha. A campaign was organized with lot of care, happiness and a deep desire to serve our divine brothers and sisters; with a desire to make them feel powerful and independent. The campaign was inaugurated by government and Brahma Kumaris on 4th January 2019 and concluded successfully on 14th February 2019.

Within a time period of around a month, it covered 100 institutions of hearing, visually impaired and mentally challenged souls. The Brahma Kumaris brothers and sisters feel lucky enough to present the glimpses of the wonderful moments spent with these beautiful and brave souls.

Self-satisfaction is the first fruit of such services. But at times, accolades and recognition from the society encourages the efforts. BK Suryamani, Co-ordinator & In-charge of Divyang Seva was also appreciated by the government and received the Mani Manika-2019 – State Award in Cuttack, Odisha.
