The article describes the experience of Abrar Khan, 26 years of age, who traveled to the poor neighborhood of Baldia, Karachi. He contracted polio when he was three and now he is a part of a team trying to convince parents to vaccinate their children. He is accompained by armed policemen because without their protection they are at risk of being killed during their immunization campaigns. As he travels door to door, he is turned away as household members claim "I don't trust it" "Why are you after my grandchildren?" "My children don't need this, leave them alone!" "There are other diseases why are you focusing on this one?"
