Sadiquebhai

Sadiquebhai

Sadiquebhai is a fruit vendor who has diabetes and had to have his leg amputated. The Indian government has a compensation program in place that would provide him with a free prosthetic limb, boots and crutches, but in order to take advantage of this program, Sadiquebhai had to travel to Ahmedabad from his small village.

The local bus was the only transportation available, but he could not manage the journey as he was not able to climb on and off the bus without aid. The fitting for the prosthetic would also require him to stay in Ahmedabad for a certain amount of time and he would need his family members to assist him during this time. With the help of a generous donor, we were able to provide him with a private car to take him to Ahmedabad for the trips that he needed to make for the treatment and pay for his expenses while he was there.
