Main aim of the charity
The most important aim of the society is to assure equal possibilities for living for every social group and make aware both society and disabled people about their possibilities to live independently. They stand 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, socialize, feel self-confident and happy.
How the employee got involved and why
My husband is 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 Eastern Harju Society for the Disabled People, Ida-Harju Invaühing (IHIÜ) in Estonian language.
I think these kinds of unions are very important for society helping people in every aspect and making the world a better place to live, so I joined them as a support member at year 2018.
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.
