Shehbaz Solangi, 31 years old, belongs to Village Mitho Solangi, Kandiaro, District Nosheroferoz. On the way to office our collgue of FRDP saw this heavy weight guy hardly dragging a broken wheelchair on road with his hands, upon asking he shared that he sits in a Mazaar and have no money to buy a new wheelchair FRDP’s. FRDP personnel exchanged the contact details with him. FRDP team called and verified his details. He shared his story as follows;
“My name is Shehbaz Solangi, my family belongs to village Mitho Solangi, Kandiaro we are 5 brothers and 3 sisters living with mother, our father has been passed away years ago. At the age of 5y I got high temperature that eventually causes damage to my feet badly we tried many doctors but unfortunately no cure could prevent me from and I lost my both legs. As a very poor family my all siblings and mother works on daily wage but they all are not earning enough to feed me as well. As I was unable to do any labour work due to the pedals issues so I decided to shifted from my village to Hyderabad. Currently I live in a Petrol pump premises as I don’t have enough money to rent out a house, people provides me some money and eatables that is helping me to survive hand to mouth hardly.
My wheelchair has been broken months ago but I have to drag it with my hands as I don’t have any other option left. It peeled my palm skin but I have no money or resources to buy a new or even used wheelchair for myself. An angel from FRDP saw me on road, he stopped his car and inquired me why I am having trouble with wheelchair as I was dragging the tires with my hands, he asked me about the background and gave me hope of help, and within days I got call from FRDP that they have arranged a new wheelchair for me, I am thankful to FRDP that actually helped me in a way that I couldn’t expect. Thanks for helping me I hope FRDP will keep helping people in need and make a difference in community.”
