(19/01/1948 to 01/02/2018)
Family Of Disabled was founded by Dr. Rajinder Johar in 1992, after sustaining an injury to his cervical spine that rendered him quadriplegic (paralysis of all the four limbs) for life. Prior to this, he was working as an occupational therapist with King Georgeís Medical College, Lucknow, UP for 20 years. After becoming disabled himself (awarded with a 100% disability certificate) and confined to bed; he decided to utilize his remaining faculties optimally to the advantage of disabled brethren.
It was only that he wasnít a biological father of FOD; he nurtured the organization like his own baby. FOD reached great heights, received great regards, honor and innumerable awards for its exclusive services to the people with disabilities under his remarkable leadership. The most unique programmes of FOD are his brainchild, which continue to provide relief to numerous people with disabilities. His passion, grit and determination helped FOD succeed by leaps and bounds. He not only turned the tables on his disability but was a shining living example to the countless disabled as well as non-disabled individuals who came to visit him from far and near. Though he is not physically present among us anymore but would continue to inspire millions with the life he led. We strongly believe that he is with us in spirit and would continue to guide and bless us as we take his grand legacy forward.
