This report just in from Uzbekistan:
The tragic accident occurred 6 months ago when Mr. Tohir was asleep in the back seat of a taxi during the night. The small and light-weight taxi was crushed completely, but amongst the three passengers sitting in the back, Mr. Tohir alone was severely injured. His spine was fractured, and he got 6 bolts screwed in so as to hold his backbone. After all, he was rendered paraplegic.
On one cold winter day in December 2012, the wheelchair of hope was delivered to Mr. Tohir’s home. Have been bounded to bed without any assistive devise for several months, he was so glad that he now was able to move around by himself on this wheelchair. He plans to start a month-long medical rehabilitation programme from January, so the wheelchair will be of great help to him in moving around in the rehabilitation centre.
Mr. Tohir has another hope: his first son has turned 15th month-old. With his beloved wife and son, we trust he will regain power to pursue new life in the near future. We also believe that his fellow Disabled People who work closely with us will stand by him and empower him during the whole process.
