He has established a network of P&O Rehab centers (presently 12 in number) in all over the affected area providing rehab services esp. assistive devices to thousands of disabled persons in the post earth quake and conflict affected areas.
Dr. Sarwar has travelled widely and has presented scores of papers and conducted various assignments all over the world. Well known in the international prosthetics and orthotic community, Dr. Sarwar presently took over the CEO position of Chal Foundation.
Chal Foundation is an impartial, independent and registered non-profit organization established for the rehabilitation of physically challenged persons.
The basic components for the rehabilitation of physically challenged persons are:
Mobility--- Physical rehabilitation
Recognition---- Laws and Policies
Opportunities /accessibility– Social and Economic Reintegration
In first instance CF will help and restore the mobility of physically challenged persons with assistive devices throughout Pakistan. Restoration of mobility, through the use of devices such as prostheses and orthosis, is the first step towards enjoying such basic rights as access to food, shelter and education, finding a job and earning an income, and, more generally, having the same opportunities as other members of society.
The 2011 World Report on Disability, published by the World Health Organization and the World Bank, gives a list of barriers faced by people with disabilities to access physical rehabilitation services. These include the lack of national plans or strategies, the lack of service provision (and if services exist, they are often located in major cities only), the lack of trained professionals and the cost of services (including the cost of transport to access services). Ensuring access to appropriate physical rehabilitation, which involves providing physiotherapy and mobility devices (prostheses, orthosis, walking aids and wheelchairs), is the general objective of the Chal Foundation.
CF assistance in the area of physical rehabilitation is designed to overcome the different barriers to accessing services faced by people with disabilities. This is done by:
Establishing rehab centers at the district level
Working closely with other public/private partners
