Some of them lost their limbs fighting for our freedom while others were just unfortunate bystanders. It’s ironic but these are the people who are lucky because they survived. How lucky are they really to be stuck helpless, be a burden to their friends/families and to be heavily dependent on their caretakers? While no money amount can get back their forever lost livelihood, we as fortune people can ease their pain and help their families by making a donation to the organizations that help people like them. Just remember no donation is too small. Please help the truly needy.
