Lal Khan


Lal Khan is a frail, 60-year-old man who was admitted to Rawalpindi General Hospital with a broken leg when a tractor overturned and injured him as he was walking. Orphaned at an early age and estranged from his siblings, Lal Khan supports himself with a string of odd jobs such as garbage collection, manual labor and the odd zakat handouts but resorts to beggary when these avenues dry up. After spending a week in a hospital in Jheulm (where there were limited orthopedic facilities), he was brought to Islamabad. By this time, he was steeped in debt to the tune of Rs. 26,000 and could not afford to pay for his operation. That is where we stepped in! he recovered completely.
