We will also be giving away 921 Callipers to patients. COVID-19 has brought in a tremendous setback in the lives of those who are economically not strong and we only intend to offer them support with a helping hand by conducting free of cost surgeries for these families. As in the past, we have conducted corrective surgeries for differently-abled individuals across India and in 7 countries across the globe. Going forward we are planning to maximise our efforts and ensure that there is a 15% yearly increase in corrective surgeries and 25% yearly growth in artificial limb distribution. Our plan is to conduct 1,40,400 surgeries in the next 5 years. We are also looking forward to major international expansion in the next five years and to establish our presence in more than 26 countries by 2026.”
