Narayan Seva Sansthan – a charitable organization that runs charitable hospitals in the country for Specially-abled people, in particular, polio and by-birth disabled, organized another Artificial Limb Distribution Camp in Bapu Nagar, Ahmedabad where 50 specially-abled were benefitted.
Early in July this year, Narayan Seva Sansthan‘s Senior Prosthetics and Orthotics specialist, Dr. Sushil Kumar who supervised this measurement camp where polio-affected as well as those who lost their legs due to diabetes, accidents, etc, got themselves measured for artificial limbs.
Doctor Sushil kumar said, “We cannot imagine how an artificial limb becomes integral supportive device and provide mobility solutions for these differently-abled, ultimately improving their quality of life.”
Prashant Agarwal, President, Narayan Seva Sansthan said, “We have provided around 99,133 calipers, 10,452 wheelchairs and around 3,646 tricycles which we feel are not adequate. That is why Narayan Seva Sansthan runs ‘Measurement and Distribution Camp’ initiatives across India to help every underprivileged differently-abled to be able to ambulate by themselves.”
Narayan Seva Sansthan has a ‘Smart Village for differently- Abled’ with all the facilities that these individuals may require. The Sansthan operates with its 480 branches in India and 86 branches abroad focusing on alleviating disabilities. As a daily practice, a free of cost vehicle is assigned by Narayan Seva Sansthan to pick up the patients and their families from Udaipur Railway Station while also providing free accommodation and food at Narayan Seva Sansthan’s guest house.
