HYDERABAD: “Even charity has become a rat race nowadays. We have many NGOs which claim to do proper paintings for the visually impaired, but there are very few which definitely empower them.

Our enterprise wants to be the bridge connecting these institutes with the visually impaired,” says Uma Shankar Veeravalli from the ‘Voice of VIP.’
