Limb donation camp to be held on Disability Day

IANS  |  New Delhi 

A charitable organisation will hold an artificial limb donation camp in which 101 aids including 51 artificial limbs, tri-cycles, wheelchairs and crutches will be distributed.

The free-of-cost limb donation camp, to be organised here on World Disability Day (December 3) by Narayan Seva Sansthan, will have around 100 amputees from across the country.

"During the camp, we will be distributing prosthesis and other devices that have been designed using the latest technology by prosthetists and not normal technicians," Narayan Seva Sansthan President Prashant Agarwal told IANS on Thursday.

In addition to corrective surgeries, the camp is expected to provide training to the specially-abled and poor people to develop their potential so that they can be self-reliant.

"The aim of the camp is to help, guide and encourage the patients. During such camps, we often see that patients feel encouraged when they see each other. They share their experiences and guide each other accordingly," Agarwal said.

"India is in great need for sensitisation, when it comes to disability and we must come together to combat the stigma surrounding disabilities," he added.

"The Artificial Limb Distribution camp is another endeavour from our side to help these individuals in their path to a fully-functioning member of the society," he explained.
