Main aim of the charity
The most important aim of the union is to assure equal possibilities for living for disabled people and other people groups with lesser means, so they will be enabled to get help for everyday needs, take part in the organized social activities, communicate and feel happy.
How the employee got involved and why
My husband has been disabled since birth and some of my friends also live with disabilities. All of them are very nice and capable people, just they can’t do everything like we can.
My husband joined the union called Ida-Harjumaa Invaühing, most active union of disabled people in Harjumaa county .
I think these kinds of unions are very important for society as they help people in every aspect and make the world a better place to live, so I joined them as a support member.
What work does the employee do for charity?
I have no extra money to donate to them, but I help them as I can with everything I can - negotiations, media communication, as a guide during nature trips and support them with physical help whenever it’s needed – pushing the wheelchair, supporting people without balance etc, etc.
What impact would winning have on the charity?
As the support union is operating with minimal funding every bit of help both financial and personal is always welcome. I believe that the union deserves support and supporting them not only supports disabled and disadvantaged people in one region in Estonia but greatly affects society.
What impact would winning have on the employee?
I really want to help this union and feel always I'd like to do more. Well, this winning would be really big thing for whole union and make me feel better.
