QUEEN’S ROAD:On September 27, Karnataka Marwari Samaj, Bengaluru in association with Bhagwan Mahaveer Vikalang Sahayata Samiti (Jaipur Foot) is organising a free Jaipur Foot distribution camp where calipers (for polio affected patients) and crutches will also be provided to the physically challenged. The Governor of Goa, Mridula Sinha will be the chief guest.
“This is all about our social commitment to help the disabled regain mobility and dignity with high-quality, durable artificial limbs and other aids and appliances. We have welcomed patients from all parts of Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala and Tamil Nadu. We realised that this was not just about fitting limbs but also about restoring dignity to other human beings, and in the process to ourselves, for it is in giving that we receive,’’ says Bimal Kumar Saraogi, project director, Karnataka Marwari Samaj.
Anil Kumar Alampuria, president, Karnataka Marwari Samaj says, “We are very proud to be able to continue our social service every year so that more and more people can benefit.
The Jaipur limb technology has been developed and further refined by the research and development team of the society. Patients are measured and their custom-made limbs/calipers are fabricated and fitted.
The results are so good that after this limb is fitted, a person can walk in a normal way even without a stick or any support, and even run, ride a bicycle and climb a tree. After the fitment, many of the patients can go back to work in any field.
Venue: Maharaja Agrasen Bhavan, No.340/8, 2nd Cross, 1st Block, near Ashoka Pillar, Jayanagar
Date: September 27
