To Serve One Life Is To Serve All of Our Humanity!
Organized by: Nematullah Ahangosh
This is what I have been learning for the past 18 years of my life in Afghanistan, where the half century wars has bring so much destructions and disabilities in my People’s life. The story begins when I first opened my eyes in the midst of civil wars in Afghanistan and find my-self surrounded by darkness and high mountains. Days in/off I noticed war had disabled thousands of People in Afghanistan not to be able to walk. I am one of those thousands teenage boy who wasn’t traumatized by war but I grow up with a physical disability and it caused me being unable to run, or hiking on the mountains which I can always dream about in nights.
My name is Nematullah Ahangosh. I am doing my High School in Kabul. I have been joining and tokening part in many Social-activities since I was a 9th grade student at School. The sole aim of my life to serve for children and kids who because of wars and socio-inequalities can’t access to Education and their basic rights. For the past 1 year I have joined the Afghan Peace Volunteers. A group of people committed to non-violence and abolition of wars. I am teaching non-violence and Peace Subject for 100 kids at this Center. I also facilitate the Website & social Media materials for this Organization as well.
Since a very young age of life, I have been disable for doing many things in life. My disability wasn’t known but some doctor’s doubt if it is muscular dystrophy though most were not sure about.
I have dedicated myself for bringing positive changes in my country. But I am not ready to dedicate myself for this disability and being unable to continue my humanitarian works where my society and my family needs me. I keep hope and want to continue working for building a world where there would be no war, violence and disable People anymore.
Recently, I have started a fundraising campaign for my medical-care. Doctor Hakim Oryoung helped me to be connected with an Indian neurologist and I have to get there as soon as I can provide my transportation and surgery money. The Indian doctors in Kabul were saying me; there is no cure for this disability here in Afghanistan but this cure is possible through Indian doctors.
Since I’m a volunteer, having no job, and my family also can’t asset for paying my medical expenses. I’m thankful for Hakim who talked to the neurologist about giving some discount for my medical expenses but still I can’t cover the rest of the expenses and for my travel costs.
Your kind donation/funds and support can save my life from a darkness and difficult future ahead. I am very scared of continuing life this way.
May the circle of life not face anyone to disability in their lives. I would be grateful for your generous hearts and humanitarian donations for helping me to be back my own.
Please also spread the word in order to reach to the goal I have set.
