Jagbir, a PPRP patient since birth, has been living with 75% disability. He has studied till class 10th, has ailing old parents and lives with his brother. The disability is a hindrance in employment and thus he is fully dependent on his brother for livelihood.
Jagbir had great difficulty in walking for even a short distance and hence was not able to do much work indepedently. The family’s poor financial condition forced him to live like this till the age of 29 yrs, untill Joy Story Foundation assisted him with the Caliper support worth INR12,000/-.
The caliper will help him walk with ease with more energy efficient gait. This will further help him in gaining employment, become independent in life and look after his old ailing parents with ease.
