According to the Report of Pakistan Bureau of Statistics – 2017, the number of persons who are suffering from some form or the other of disability stands at 1,826,623 in Punjab. Amongst them are people of exceptional talents and skill, writers, journalists, artists, businessmen, technicians and master artisans – whose usefulness to the community is hampered by their disability. The transformation from the role of proud breadwinner to helpless dependent is always a traumatic experience producing deep bitterness and frustration. In the absence of any organized community aid, the family is severely handicapped financially and often disintegrates under the unbearable pressure of. circumstances. A disabled person in the family – whether man, woman, or child – conditions the family environments and imposes tragic restraints on every one of its members. It leads to warping of personalities and subconscious antagonism which is rooted in frustration. Thus the physical rehabilitation of the disabled — which also includes their spiritual and economic rehabilitation — is an urgent humanitarian task which the more fortunate members of the community are morally bound to share.
