Oikopolis social center hasn't added a story.
Κhuram has lived the last 10 years without the right arm since he was 16. In order to survive, he had to work in extremely hazardous conditions. In Pakistan people with disabilities are outcasts, so Khuram was condemned to a life of helplessness, self-pity and dependence on others.
And so he resolved to embark on a perilous journey in search of a second chance at life. He came to Greece, and has applied for asylum.
We have come to know Khuram through the volunteer actions of Oikopolis and the Ecological Movement. He has impressed us immensely with his strength of character and desire to be of use. Despite his challenging situation, he is continuing his education and actively acquiring new skills.
With his strength he reminds us every day that, where there is a will, nothing is unattainable.
We want to help him get a new arm so that he can be fully functional and sufficient again. Able to look after himself, able to work and be independent, able to enjoy life again.
We can all help Khuram achieve his dream.
Second arm, second life for Khuram
Ο Κhuram εδώ και 10 χρόνια - από την ηλικία των 16 ετών- ζει χωρίς το δεξί του χέρι. Στο Πακιστάν, αναγκαζόταν να εργάζεται σε ένα πολύ επικίνδυνο περιβάλλον, προκειμένου να επιβιώσει. Η αντιμετώπιση των ανθρώπων με αναπηρία στη χώρα του, θα καταδίκαζαν τον Khuram σε μια ζωή ανημποριάς, αυτολύπησης και εξάρτησης από άλλους.
Γι αυτό, αποφάσισε να κάνει ένα επικίνδυνο ταξίδι, αναζητώντας μια δεύτερη ευκαιρία στη ζωή. Έφτασε έτσι στην Ελλάδα, όπου αιτήθηκε άσυλο.
Γνωρίσαμε τον Khuram, μέσα από τις εθελοντικές δράσεις του Oικόπολις και της Οικολογικής Κίνησης. Εντυπωσιαστήκαμε από το ήθος του και την θέλησή του για προσφορά. Παρά την αναπηρία του, επιδιώκει να μορφώνεται και να αποκτά, διαρκώς, νέες δεξιότητες.
Με την δύναμη του μας υπενθυμίζει καθημερινά, πως τίποτα δεν είναι ακατόρθωτο, όταν υπάρχει θέληση.
Όλες και όλοι μπορούμε να βοηθήσουμε τον Khuram να κατακτήσει το όνειρό του.
Νέο χέρι, νέα ζωή για τον Κ huram
