Vipul is one of our beneficiary who received prosthetic leg at one of our mobility camp. Hear his story !
“It will be seven years that I have lived without one leg. All these years it has left me feel terrible to be disabled and to see my family struggle for me. It was in 2009 when I lost my leg to a road accident. That day was as normal as any other day for me; I never thought I would be coming back with one leg when I left my home the same morning. I am very much aware what my wife has been through, but also I know that she is stronger than me. Not a single day she has left me alone to survive with this disability. As the major responsibility of our house had fallen on my wife, I was adamant that I need to work. I knew I had to stand up strong for my wife and two children. That was the time I decided to take up this job as a watchman. Every day my wife dropped me at my work place, and then in the evening came to pick me after completing all the chores. “
“I did not like the fact that she had to take so much of trouble. I wanted to be more independent, and lessen the burden of my wife. But somehow nothing was working; my thoughts worried me throughout the day and kept me awake for several nights. Then, I came to know about some camp happening in my neighborhood. I went there to get some details on it and came to know that Ratna Nidhi Trust from Mumbai is holding a camp in Pune for disabled. That very moment there was a hope which made me smile. I somehow knew that this camp is going to help me walk again. They had taken my measurement earlier and have now fitted the leg. And finally I am taking my Jaipur foot along with me.”
“Today after so many years my family will see me entering the house without any support. I will walk without taking the support of the walls of my house.”
