About Us: The Beginning…..
The PARAPLEGIC FOUNDATION was started in 1968 by a group of social workers and doctors, in the barracks of LTMG Municipal Hospital located at Sion , Mumbai, India, to rehabilitate, and provide total health care facilities for paraplegics and the severely orthopedically disabled.
Who is a Paraplegic ?
A PARAPLEGIC is a person whose lower extremities are affected and has usually no control over his bladder and bowel movements and little or no sensation in his lower extremities. This usually occurs due to a fall, injury or infection of the spinal cord.
The aim & mission of the foundation is to work for the paraplegics, to provide facilities in total health care, to encourage & motivate them to be self-confident, self-reliant and self-sufficient.
The Motto: " I CAN, I WILL ! "
