“I couldn’t get back to normalcy for about two months after the trauma. I was physically and psychologically dependent on my family members for each and every basic needs. I was admitted in GSIF in October 2016, where with the guidance of medical and para-medical professionals I shaped myself to enter a new life with positive perception. GSIF also helped financially by subsidizing the treatment cost and also provided me a wheelchair. Thanks to GSIF that today i feel fresh and confident enough to move independently to my school..

During the period in GSIF, I was not only trained physically but also trained to cope up with fundamental needs and emotional fluctuations.
