Hope Rehabilitation Society is first Institution which introduced E-Limb for disabled persons

Lahore, May 07, 2014 (PPI-OT): It is the happiest day of my life as I am back on my feet thanks to Hope Rehabilitation Society who enabled me to walk with the world again.

This is what was stated by one Abdul Rauf who lost his leg in a suicide attack in Bajuor Agency almost a year ago. He said that for being a poor family it was near to impossible for them to get an artificial limb but the Hope Rehabilitation Society materialised his dreams as the help extended by Hope Rehabilitation Society has enabled me to be an active member of the society again.

It is pertinent to mention here that Abdul Rauf had lost his left leg at knee level about six years ago and was unable to move without crutches. He started begging to arrange meal for his family.

On recommendation of Lahore Businessmen Association for Rehabilitation of Disabled, Hope Rehabilitation Society arranged an artificial leg for him free of cost that is normally very costly.

President Hope Rehabilitation Society Dr. Khalid Niazi said that after fitting of the artificial leg, blast-hit man would be walking on his feet normally and will be able to do his routine activities and could also have some reasonable work for bread earning.

He said that Hope Rehabilitation Society was the first Institution who had introduced “E-Limb” in the country for the disabled persons who lost their limbs in accident or in terrorist attacks.
