A story of courage

Slogan - - NEWS BUZZ -

It all started back in March 2008 when Anum was re­turn­ing to Muzaf­farabad with her fam­ily af­ter at­tend­ing a wed­ding in Rawalpindi.

Out of nowhere a group of armed rob­bers fired at their car to stop them. One of the bul­lets pen­e­trated Anum’s neck and stopped mid­way. This led to a spinal cord in­jury that par­a­lyzed her full body from be­low the neck. The in­ci­dent left her near-par­a­lyzed..

Anum was a 3rd year MBBS stu­dent then. The med­i­cal treat­ment for her in­juries did lit­tle to im­prove her con­di­tion. But she wasn’t ready to give up yet. She was dis­charged af­ter 5 weeks from the hos­pi­tal. It was a very hard time for her and her fam­ily.

She went back to her stud­ies at­tended to col­lege in a wheel­chair and af­ter com­plet­ing her MBBS, she did spe­cial­iza­tion in Psy­chi­a­try and be­came the first Quadriplegic Psy­chi­a­trist in Pak­istan.
