Left disabled from 1995 accident

This is John. He was run over by a car in 1995. He was unable to afford medical care and so, as a result of the accident, he became disabled. He is unable to stand. He has no wheelchair and has to crawl everywhere. He survives by begging in the marketplace.

The family are so poor they are unable even to afford the £3 per person annual medical insurance offered by the government.

When our worker discovered John and his family, he broke down in tears.

Thanks to our wonderful supporters at RSVP, we were able to pay for medical insurance for the whole family at a total cost of only £15 for one year!

It doesn’t give John the ability to walk again but the family were so happy that if anyone has an accident or illness from now on, they can go straight to hospital as they are now insured.

Thank you RSVP supporters!
