Additional Information & Comments

We are serving the physically challenged communiy from last 7 years,we believe there is no physical disability if a prosthetist and orthotist is sincere and honest with his/her job ,profession.

we have treated by providing artificial limbs fracture braces to more than 189 amputees after south asian earthquake disaster within 68 days in Pakistan,,without any major financial assitance from the Government,NGO,etc,,when we(my wife and me)have decided to provide the assistive devices to the earth quake victims 100% free of cost, specifically the children when they were at their schools at the time of massive destruction,,and thousands of girls and women who were at their homes,,,buried alive.at that time we never know ,,how we would be able to manage it,,but we just started it,,,,and God has helped us in every tough and challenging turn,,and we have done that,,,,,What we want to convey,,,,if we are true and sincere and honest with our intentions,,nothing is impossible,but if we will keep waiting for the donations,,,then it may be so much late ,,that it could cause the physological death along the death of the missing limb,and there would not be any hope of the disabled awaiting patients,

what we want to convey,,,where there is a willl!!!! there is a way,,,just make it sure.
