Blog: “I can’t thank LMRF enough for giving me the opportunity to reflect on my own career, and to share my passion for the profession”- Goljar Ahmed
I am Goljar Ahmed, obtained my Bachelor of Physiotherapy Degree on 2011. But that certificate was simply a paper for me until I come to know about LMRF. On those days, I was roaming here & there not for searching jobs rather I was eagerly waiting for that moment when I would be able to engage my merit & skills for the betterment of outreached people who are deprived from their fundamental rights. Suddenly the long awaited moment knocked my destiny & it was the day of 17th August 2013. It was the day when I got opportunity to be a part of LMRF.
At first, I started working for Zero Club Foot (ZCF) project but gradually the boundary of ZCF was losing its limit and I became a part of LMRF which empowered me to think “Now I am in Core”. I have been working here as Project Officer (Physiotherapy & Rehab). First 6 (six) months, I have been working under direct supervision of Mr. Hossain Baker. I got stumbled seeing these little angels having such physical deformities and I was also instructed to make plasters to these babies. I have worked closely and collaboratively with the OT on the team in co-treatment session. After 2 months, I received an official instruction for the treatment of a baby and since then the number of plaster/casting is more than thousand which were done by me.The experiences so far have been very beneficial for both my personal and professional growth.
This is really an unforgettable feeling to work for such little babies. This could happen none other than Dr. Shamim Khan, The Executive Director (ED) of LMRF who gave me the opportunity to join LMRF and he’s the person from whom I received the basic/fundamental training on Zero Club Foot treatment. Now after a successful treatment when I see the smiling faces of the parents it encourage me to live one more day for these children.
I am blessed of being a small part of this noble initiative. Sometime when I recall my memory and realize the achievement what we made together I am overwhelmed by an innumerable feelings. I wish to serve more & more people like this way so that I could see those smiling faces again & again throughout my entire life.
