Lives in: Ghantasalua, Nayagarh, Odisha
Disease: Locomotor Disability (70% of body is paralyzed)When Keshab was young, he was working as a daily laborer at some construction site, earning descent money for his family of 5 to live. His father, mother, wife and a little son were living together happily even in that small earning. One day he met with a serious accident, he was taken to the hospital and the doctors rushed for a surgery to save his life. The surgery was successful, his life was saved but from waist down his body got completely paralyzed. Now he is completely bed-bound. After this the family never visited any hospital due to poor financial conditions. As a result, over a period of time his hands started to paralyze and both his foot are getting infected due to long contact with iron bed. Few months back, in the early 2018 we saw him and his family in the collector’s office. We spoke to them, heard their story and told them that they are not alone. We bought a medical air-bed for him which will stop his foot from infection. And we went with them to the SV NIRTAR Physiotherapy hospital for doctor consultation.
