    Dear Sir or Madam

    I joined PAF as trainee GD Pilot in 1994. I had met an accident in 1996 during the training which broke my both legs and caused a head injury. Due to the head injury I lost the vision of my left eye. I can’t see with left eye. I had to struggle harder and harder. I did my MBA and started teaching. I have been teaching in private institutions since 2007. Unfortunately I met an accident on 11 March 2010 again. This time it broke my left femur at three places. Dr Imran Ali Shah operated my leg on 15 March 2010. The dr came to know after six months of the operation on 17 September 2010 that due to an orthopaedic complication the operation was’t done properly. However, he reoperated my leg on 22 September 2010. I am father of five innocent children and have been out of job since my accident. I am facing tough financial constaints, so I am making appeal that help me financially as I recover with peace of mindand restart my work as soon as I come back to normal life.I hope to get positive response very soon.
