Vosif was born in 2005. When he was 5 months old, his mother Gulbarg found out that something was wrong. She had lots of housework at that time, and most of the time she put him in his cradle sleeping. When her mother-in-law came from Dushanbe to visit them, she saw the baby and said that he was not developed as a five months old baby.
They took him to the doctor in Dushanbe and they found out that he has cerebral palsy. He can’t walk, and even though he understands when other people talk, only his mother can understand him talking. When Gulbarg tells about her feelings at the time, she gets tears in her eyes. She explains that she became very sad. “I thought about that he will have lots of difficulties in the future and once I die, he will be alone in this world.”
Three years ago he went to Mission East’s rehabilitation center in Penjakent and now he goes to the play corner in the village. He has made two friends there and they play with ball and with toy cars.
