Hello From Pakistan

A Leg To Stand On’s program director, A.J. Warco, is currently visiting our program partner in Pakistan – the Pakistan Society for the Rehabilitation of the Disabled (PSRD). One of the many exciting parts of his visit to PSRD includes meeting patients of ALTSO’s, including Misbah.

 

 

Misbah was born with club-foot that went untreated for many years, impairing her mobility. When she was 13 years old she began treatment at PSRD, finally receiving the ankle-foot braces she needed. Now, at age 17 she is still being treated as one of ALTSO’s patients who will receive complete care until she reaches adulthood at the age of 18. She is currently a student at PSRD with aspirations to one day become a psychiatrist.
