Changing the Future of Families...

Child Farshad was 11 months old when he accidentally placed both his hands in hot water and sustained burn injuries to both hands. The wounds healed crippling both hands.

Burns often happen to young children. Left untreated, the scar can bend bones and make horrible deformities and make the hands totally functionless. We all live by our hands and when a child's hands become functionless the family suffers untold misery.


The wounds healed creating a deformity in both the hands. With both hands not working the child becomes crippled and is a burden to the society.
