Persons with disabilities are often overlooked in discussions about Pakistan’s future. This is by no means peculiar to Pakistan: discrimination, exclusion and neglect of persons with disabilities is common all over the world.
Mobility is the first and most critical hurdle faced by a physically challenged person as it severely affects the lifestyle, education, livelihood and career of that person. Therefore, Khushhali Microfinance Bank Limited (KMBL) is working in partnership with multiple organizations across Pakistan to improve the mobility of PWDs by means of prosthetics and other equipment.
In partnership with CHAL Foundation, Khushhali Microfinance Bank has provided prosthetics to five patients in an effort to improve their mobility and to facilitate their reintegration into the society. Among these patients are little angels, Farooq and Zainab, who can now return to their schools to continue their education and pursue their dreams. We also have inspiring stories of Nadeem Iqbal, Ahmedullah and Javed Iqbal who have been provided with prosthetics and are trying to reintegrate into the society to support their families.
