Medical Rehabilitation of Bant Singh

While Bant Singh continues to defy the fetters imposed by the

disability following the barbaric assault, there are several

difficulties that he now faces. He is unable to move on his

own, a surgery is pending in the leg that was left intact but

dysfunctional. He has 8 very young children to look after; his

piggery the work that had freed him from the feudal bonds

of being tied to the landlords fields has collapsed and there

are multiple medical complications.

What You can Do

While Bant Singh’s courage is incredibly exemplary, we cannot

be mere spectators. We could all contribute to his medical

rehabilitation and ensure that he is back on his feet. Doctors

have pointed out that with the current developments in

medical technology, it would not be impossible to fit

artificial limbs, both arms and legs, for him. Given the

nature of amputation and the extent of prosthetic aids

required, it is an expensive procedure but this is also necessary

to prevent his organs from getting atrophied.

Bant Singh is currently admitted in St. Stephen’s Hospital,

Delhi. Today, while the process of medical rehabilitation has

started, there is an urgent need for funds so that we can get

the best possible prosthetic aids for him. We urgently seek

your financial support for this purpose.

Bant Singh’s rehabilitation would give all struggling

people immense courage and hope. We owe it to Bant

Singh to enable him to walk again.
