Cuddalore, India - March 20, 2012 - BASF, in association with UN-HABITAT and implementation partner Leonard Cheshire Disability (LCD) today inaugurated a Disability Resource Centre at Saraswathi Nagar (Manakkuppam Village) in the Cuddalore district of Tamil Nadu. The initiative is an extension of the company's ongoing project to support people with disabilities, and aims to benefit over 2000 people.

"While BASF frequently supports communities affected by natural disasters, this project in particular aims to provide relief and rehabilitation support to the inhabitants of the disaster affected regions. The project was designed to address the pressing needs of local communities, especially the disabled, the most vulnerable section of society. The Center will serve as an information and advisory center to the people with disabilities," said Mr. Prasad Chandran, Chairman, BASF Companies in India & Head South Asia at the inaugural function. The function witnessed the presence of over 150 beneficiaries, local panchayat, officials of the Education, Social & Welfare Department from the district and members of the community. The Chief Guest for the event was Mr. Rajendra Ratnoo, IAS, Collector of Cuddalore-Government of Tamil Nadu

Expressing his contentment over achieving another milestone in the project, Mr. Bhushan Tuladhar, Regional Technical Advisor (South Asia), UN-HABITAT said, "We are proud to see the results of this unique partnership between BASF, a local non-government organization, government bodies and nearby communities. The Disability Resource Center, equipped with orthopedic, speech and physiotherapy facilities, is expected to support people with disabilities and provide them with a platform to come together, engage in productive activities, learn and share. It will function as an oasis for people with various types of disabilities and become a social hub for networking and knowledge sharing. We look forward to seeing a lively center that engages proactively with people with disabilities as well as the entire community."
