The Team CLAW under its Operation Blue Freedom, has signed an MoU with Maldivian Integrated Tourism Council (MITDC) to conduct a world championship to create triple records on land, water and air by preparing largest teams of PwDs to participate in scuba diving in Maldives in March 2021, freefall sky diving in Dubai in June, and a trek to the highest battlefield in the world, the Siachen glacier in India. .

Nearly 50 PwDs from across the globe are training at Puducherry and later in Lakshwadeep with Pranab Roy as one of the participants, comprising training in Sky Diving, Scuba Diving and Mountaineering by the former Special Forces instructors and civilian volunteers.

The MoU with MITDC also covers long term collaboration between CLAW Global and MITDC to create cutting edge rehabilitation ecosystems for people with disabilities not only from Maldives but from India and other parts of the world.
