YOUR DIL is committed to trying to better the lives of the children at our Nation School outside of their school activities. One of the more incredible, heartwarming stories to come to our attention is that of our student Arshad. Paralyzed from the waist down due to a poorly treated childhood disease, Arshad is unable to walk. As he lives in the unpaved dirt and stone-ridden area of Orangi, he is also unable to make use of a wheelchair.
However, still determined to go to school everyday, Arshad drags himself on all fours, to the point of making his knees bleed to get to the Nation School for his classes. YOUR DIL has committed funds for new, modern crutches for Arshad to help alleviate his pain and make his journey to class and through life a little easier. We are so proud of his determination to learn. He is truly an inspiration to all of us.
