Story of Prakash
It’s amazing that a boy who fell off a tree 8 months ago would not even seek basic treatment, and eventually be found in a rather dramatic state (see picture)!! Such are the barriers that socioeconomic deprivation and lack of awareness pose!
Prakash was a glaring example of this. We found him hopping with his broken leg literally in his hands! How he got around for 8 months with the pain and disability posed by this we do not know! He was brought to HRDC and underwent corrective surgery to straighten his limb and rehabilitation that enabled him to walk normally again. The results are as dramatic as the presentation, and highlight the need of services such as HRDC in an environment such as ours.
