Sonam Spinal Center Project
Sonam (on right in photo) suffered a traumatic spinal cord injury. She was struck by a car while walking home from school and lost most of the use of her legs. Through generous donations, OLS was able to provide emergency funding for a heater and other necessities as well as the funds for her to travel to and receive surgery and rehab services at the Indian Spinal Injuries Center. These donations helped her regain some mobility which was essential to getting her back to her community. Thank you to the Indian Spinal Injuries Center and all of our donors!
