FOD was founded by Dr. Rajinder Johar, an occupational therapist with over 20 years of experience from King George’s Medical College, Lucknow, after he was rendered bed-ridden for life following a gun-shot injury to his cervical spine. He became quadriplegic (paralysis of all the four limbs); while he had the option of succumbing to his condition and leading a meaningless, dependent life; he chose to gather all his force and bounce back with a vengeance. To put his academic and professional knowledge and vast experience to good use, he set out on a mission to rehabilitate people living with disabilities by assessing their pressing needs and introducing programmes to meet those needs. As after becoming disabled, he spent ample time thinking about and planning a way to rehabilitate people stuck on crossroads of various disabilities.
