Sri Bimal Kumar Saraogi, Project Director, Karnataka Marwari Samaj said, “All of us are affected in some way or other in this pandemic and we should contribute as per our capacity to help others. It is a clear social vision and commitment of KMS to help the disabled regain mobility and dignity by fitting high-quality, durable artificial limbs and other aids and appliances.
Speaking about the Camp Mr. Anand Poddar, President, Karnataka Marwari Samaj said, “It is heartening to see the coming together of people and communities to help each other out. We strongly believe that service to man is service to God, and invite one and all to take this opportunity to serve humanity.
The artificial limbs provided by Karnataka Marwari samaj uses Jaipur Limb Technology. This technology has been developed and further refined by the research and development team of society. The Jaipur Limb is a one-stop facility and the patients who come are measured and their custom-made limb/caliper are fabricated and fitted, without making them visit again a second 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 and climb a tree. After the fitment, many of the patients can go back to work in the field, factories, shops, and offices.
