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 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.
