Abrar Hassan : a journey through disability
August 24, 2017
Today we are sharing the story of Abrar Hassan, a young Indian living in Paharganj.
In July 2016, Abrar joined LP4Y (Life Project 4 Youth), an NGO which that trains and helps integrate excluded and poor youth ages 17 to 24 years old into the community.
Two years ago, Abrar was attacked by drunk friends who threw a large stone at his head many times. He was in a coma for a year. When he woke up, a majority of his memories had been lost and he couldn’t talk properly. He was weak, skinny, paralyzed on his right side for a year and a half, and had a problem with concentration and writing.
Since joining LP4Y, Abrar has improved a lot and re-learned step-by-step what he had lost after his accident. He started out having a lot of trouble managing his emotions and memories, but by the end of his one-year program at LP4Y he was able to find a decent job.
Guddu, member of the Trust Team, is helping Abrar get a handicapped card. A big congrats to Abrar’s efforts and to Guddu and LP4Y for their hard work.
