Her father took care of her and was very positive about her improvement. He followed all the steps as physiotherapist taught him. Now Pooja’s deformity has been cured and his father said “ I always see my child while going to school and feel very happy and pray for you all and those children who have disabilities.
I had lost my hope that my child could be cured but after coming to GRIRR I started hoping the
best for my child”.
