Karnataka Marwari Samaj in association with Bhagwan Mahaveer Vikalang Sahayata Samiti (Jaipur Foot) is organizing a “Free Foot camp for Footless”. In this camp Karnataka Marwari Samaj (KMS) will provide Jaipur foot, callipers (for polio affected patients) & crutches for handicapped. It is a clear social vision & commitment to help the disabled regain mobility & dignity by fitting high – quality, durable artificial limbs & other aids & appliances. The measurement camp will be conducted on Sun 17th Dec, 2017 at Maharaja Agrasen Bhavan, No. 340/8, 2nd Cross, 1st Block, Near Ashoka Pillar, Jayanagar, Bengaluru – 560011, Time 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. The last date for registration will be closed on Sat 16th Dec, 2017.
As per the measurement, it will be kept ready & it will distributed at the same place on 7th Jan, 2018.
‘‘As we stood amongst the poorest of the poor in everywhere , some of them coming from 1000’s 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 averred, “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 & 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.
