My Baby Junior Saved the Lives of Children

In 2010, I was overwhelmed to travel in Tajikistan. It was a great opportunity to be a volunteer in this country. At first, I felt in doubt if I can able to live in this country for one year. I am living solely in the apartment and things were getting weirder and weirder. I started to talk to myself with my baby dummy in the house. I called him “Jamshed” and it means Junior. I got it from Operation Mercy. He was my companion and carried out my mission. Some local people find strange to see him with me all the time. Without him, I wasn’t able to demonstrate the practical techniques in treating children with disabilities or impairments. Now that I am in the Philippines, my baby junior is still carrying out his role in the hospital that I had worked with. He continued my legacy that I started in Tajikistan. It might look creepy but he had improved the functional ability of children who are inflicted with diseases leading to impairments or disabilities. Image Credit: Shavkat

Yes, it is. He was so patient enough to help all the children who wanted to live to the fullest. He had encouraged the children with disability or impairment to be in good condition. Image Credit: Shavkat

@Shavkat If you could it would be a great thing for the Children and others that have lost their movement capability.

@lovinangelsinstead21 I hope I can able to do it. I had also created my own book how to determine the proper treatment for children with impairments or disabilities. It is not published yet.

@Meramar You are right, my friend. They played to him and learn some exercises with the help of Jamshed. Jamshed demonstrated the proper movements of the body.

@Shavkat .. I think young people should do at least a year or two volunteering work ... You are blessed to have experienced that ..

Doesn't matter how he looks. I am glad that it was with those who needed him. And you are doing a real good job there. God bless you.
