Ratna is a young woman, age 20, from Shatkhira. She is a patient with a spinal cord injury, who came at CRP for treatment, 2 months back. She had a family consisting of her husband and a little baby boy. Her husband often demanded “dowry”. When Ratna’s poor family could not provide it, he started to torture her. One day, he got very furious and beat her until she was unconscious. He and his mother threw Ratna from the roof of their two storied building. When she regained consciousness, she found herself in hospital. Doctors found her spinal column was fractured. She was operated upon in the National Institute of Traumatology and Orthopaedic Rehabilitation (NITOR) and stayed there for six months. Her husband divorced her after her surgery. Now, her poor father is bearing all her expenses. She referred to CRP nine months after her accident. She is receiving medical care, physiotherapy and occupational therapy and counseling service here. She started to regain some strength in her legs. Now, she can walk a little. She is very pleased with the services provided by CRP for patients like her. She is now planning to enroll herself a training titled ‘Industrial Sewing Machine Operation’ at CRP-Ganakbari following her discharge. CRP’s liberal donors are providing the cost for her treatment. Ratna and her family are very grateful to CRP.
