    Story

    I am a soldier trying to help the handicapped son of a fallen comrade. Fateh Whig was born with severe Spina Bifeda and while he has received good medical care his access to quality rehabilitative care has been limited. Fateh's father Mohit Whig was a dear friend and was killed by a roadside bomb planted by extremists in India. As Fateh gets older he will need to have more independence and to gain this he needs training to be able to self help and in doing so to live with dignity.

      Update from the Page owner

      Well this part of the project has come to an end. After we fix a few small gifting glitches from the US we will collect almost £24000. I have also been doing push ups in pubs and functions collecting along the way so I have almost £2000 in cash and cheques to add to this so we will have achieved almost £26000 and we still think there is a little more to come. We could not have done this without your help, your patience with numerous facebook and linkedin posts, but most most of all your wonderful hearts and spirit of generosity and care. We don't expect miracles but we do know this will give Fateh the opportunity to be more independent, to do some of the basics we take for granted in our daily life and with this in place to give him the opportunity to realise his full potential. At a time of great troubles in the world you have all shown we are more alike than different, that empathy for the needs of others is not lessened by race or creed or colour. We are many but we are one!

      Without all of your support and kindness and generosity this magnificent initiative of Bill's would not have been possible.
