A wheelchair gift

NCF-Nepal has been able to give a wheelchair as a gift to Mr. Jiwan Giri, a 55-year-old man. He is originally from the Syangja district of Nepal but, currently, lives in a one-room house in the slum area of Pokhara. Because of leprosy-paralysis, his feet never developed correctly, making it impossible for him to walk. His wife and 11-year-old daughter work as domestic help and he has a weight machine as his only source of income. He sets up on the street, where people can pay him to check their weight.
