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

Time :10:30 am onwards.
