Mr. Shafiq-ul Islam, Executive Director, CRP welcomed the team at CRP’s head office. Members of Parliamentarians’ Caucus were briefed on CRP’s services and activities by Mr. Shafiq-ul Islam which was followed by a cultural programme performed by students of CRP’s Inclusive Primary School and a thorough visit of CPR’s facilities. The team found CRP’s facilities interesting and hoped that the visit would help them to formulate realistic and supportive laws and policies which will uphold the rights and fundamental freedom of people with disabilities in Bangladesh. They hoped that CRP would continue to play an important role in the treatment and rehabilitation of people with disabilities in the future. In an interview to The Daily Star, a noted english daily of Bangladesh, Mr. Abdul Matin Khasru told “The way the CRP is working for the treatment and rehabilitation of the physically challenged people at almost free of cost is quite unique not only in Bangladesh but in the world.

He was passing his strenuous life in Dhaka City as usual with other street children. He got primary education before but did not continue for lack of family support.

Once he was working in the Komlapur Railway Station carrying passenger’s loads.When he stood with other children beside a large water drum, a train ticket checker came and pushed him to move away from there. At that moment, a running train came very near to Abdullah. He could not move from the railway plates immediately and got stuck with the railway slippers.
