Mamta and Her Struggle

Mamata was diagnosed with polio when she was 12 and had since been unable to make use of the full potential of her legs. Five years back when she came to us, she was using an improvised wheelchair that was too big really; more like a cart. Once she had decided to stay with us, we provided her with a wheelchair. She had never had any education previously. At Shri Jeet Handicap Service Center, she was introduced to letter and words.

A few years back, we got her examined and made an amazing discovery that she could walk again. It took some time and a few operations and over a period of three years before she could stand on her own legs. She still needs support and it will be a while before she can walk fully on her own, but we are absolutely sure that the day will come. Mamata resides with us and is adamant as ever on getting education.  She wants to be a nurse.

Gaurav, 12 – Morang

Gaurav was 7 years old and had legs that had been severed by polio when we encountered him. He couldn’t walk and because his parents couldn’t afford mobile aids, would either be sitting idle at the porch or slugging around, which caused severe bruises and wounds all over his legs . With parents at the farm and a 10 year old sibling off to school, Guarav would be home alone most of the time, with nothing to do but wait and develop an erratic behavior.
