In the 11th year celebrations Karnataka Marwari Samaj in association with Bhagwan Mahaveer Vikalang Sahayata Samiti (Jaipur Foot) organized Free distribution function of Jaipur Foot Camp. More than 150 patients were provided with Artificial Limbs, callipers (for polio affected patients) & crutches for handicapped.
Chief Guest Shri Subhash Ji Agrawal, General Secretary, Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee distributed Artificial limbs to the needy persons in presence the of Karnataka Marwari Samaj members on Sunday 7th Jan, 2018 at Maharaja Agrasen Bhavan, No.340 / 8, 2nd Cross, 1st Block, Near Ashoka Pillar, Jayanagar, Bengaluru -560011 .
It is a clear social vision & commitment of Karnataka Marwari Samaj to help the disabled regain mobility & dignity by fitting high – quality, durable artificial limbs and other aids & appliances.
‘‘As we stood amongst the poorest of the poor everywhere, some of them coming from thousands of miles away, we realised 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. There may be other places in the world where compassion is that tangible; it is just that we had not seen any’’. averred Bimal Kumar Saraogi, Project Director, Karnataka Marwari Samaj.
Anil Kumar Alampuria, President, Karnataka Marwari Samaj avers, “We are very proud to continue our social services every year, so that more & more people can be benefited”.
The artificial limbs provided by Karnataka Marwari Samaj use Jaipur Limb Technology. This technology has been developed & further refined by the research & development team of the society. The Jaipur Limb is a one – stop facility and the patients who come are measured and their custom -made limb / caliper are fabricated & fitted, without making them visit again a 2nd time. it is so efficient that after this limb is fitted, a person can walk like a normal person without a stick or support, and even run, ride a bicycle & climb a tree. After the fitment many of the patients can go back to work in the field, factories, shops & offices.
