Jaipur Foot Camp
“I used to cry because he had no shoes,
and then I met a man who had no feet.”
The Club has been organizing annual Jaipur Foot Camps, since November
2011, with technical support from Bhagwan Mahavir Viklang Sahayata Samiti.
Their mobile van has an inbuilt workshop where technicians fabricate the
limb, according to individual size.
The Club donates calipers, crutches, walkers, wheelchairs, and tricycles to the
needy, as per medical advice. Patients are measured by the technician, before
the limb is fitted. They are taught to balance, walk, remove, and attach their
‘new’ foot, before they go home.
Camps are organized at different venues for three days, to reach out to
different people, especially in the interiors of the state.
It is an enriching experience to see patients walk out proudly on their new
limbs, their self-esteem restored for a better life ahead.
