Manju born on September 10, 2009 (2066-05-25 BS) in the rural Mahara village of Bijaypur in Baitadi district in the far-western region of State # 7. She is the first child of the Mahara family (Farther Lokesh and Mother Bhura). All the family members were very happy to have a first girl child in the family but at the very next moment, everybody was upset as Manju was born with right leg turns towards the inside(deformity: clubfoot). The economic status of the Mahara family is very poor and do not have any other means of income sources except the seasonal labor work quite often in the bordering town in India and the generated income is hardly enough to meet their basic needs only so they never thought of Manju’s treatment.
Manju had to spend almost 4 months at HRDC for treatment as the case was quite rigid and difficult to treat. With all the loving tender care from HRDC team, Manju was able to walk on her own.
