    Dear Rekha Maa,
    I would like to express my dearest gratitude for all the assistance and guidance that you and your team has provided to me. It was an honour to visit you all in Chennai. I have received a lot of information and a lot of ways and methods through which I can help my daughter progress. I feel like I now know what my responsibilities towards my daughter are and I am no longer helpless. In the time I spent there I realised so much of what I could do and could have done. I feel heartbroken when I think about how I could have helped but I think being late is better than never. In such a short period of time you made it possible for me to meet many doctors and also go through complete check ups. You also provided financial help for which I would never be able to thank you enough for. I would like to thank you and your team once again for all the care and support I have received.

    Respected Madam, Firstly I thank you for giving me this opportunity to travel with you for the assessment as it has truly been a learning experience for me as a professional. I was able to get the different kind of thought and attitudes of parents of DS child in Gujarat with ones in our center here. I was also shocked with the kind of professional blunder made by many therapist in Gujarat by prescribing a AFO( ankle foot orthosis) used usually in spasticity or contracture for a down syndrome kids. I was happy to share my professional knowledge with a fellow therapist there and with parents in improving the child's milestone delay and educating the disadvantage of AFO usage for DS kids. I have previously worked with special kids. A 7months work experience with down syndrome kids & as a mother of a 4yr old ,comparing them I believe that there is little difference in a DOWN SYNDROME CHILD and a NORMAL CHILD and it's the delay in physical development & bit intellectually challenged. A DOWN SYNDROME CHILD IS NOT COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM A NORMAL CHILD IN TERMS OF BEHAVIOUR AND UNDERSTANDING. THE DIFFERENCE IS IN THE PARENTS /PEOPLE'S MIND OF LOOKING AT DS KID.

    We are currently in the UK and wanted to visit Mathru Mandir and personally meet Dr. Rekha and her team. In September 2016, we were in Chennai for 3 consecutive days. We are very happy with our interaction with Rekha Ma's expert team including specialized doctors and Mathru Mandir's on board full time physiotherapy, Yoga and other trained staff members. We can confirm that the objective of this organisation is to serve the community. We have got a lot of inputs. One important point, Rekha Ma personally had come to receive us at the Chennai Airport. Her hospitality is truly incomparable. She loves her children and associated parents. We also met parents ​​ from low income groups and were delighted to see the support they received interacting with a team of qualified doctors. I pray for Rekha Ma's good health and my best wishes for her work in this area. All the best team. ".
