The Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti (BMVSS) has started an artificial limb fitment camp in association with the central government at Myanmar’s Yangon city.
The camp is being organised as per an agreement between BMVSS and the Ministry of External Affairs for providing 5,000 ‘Jaipur Foot’ to the needy amputees of various countries.
A few days ago, BMVSS organised camps in Vietnam.
“In both Myanmar and Vietnam, 1,000 disabled people will be provided with ‘Jaipur Foot’. This is a humanitarian effort of the Union government where BMVSS is the implementing agency,” according to an official statement issued.
“The joint effort of the Ministry of External Affairs and BMVSS will help the disabled people of various nations in coming years,” said D R Mehta, the founder and chief patron of BMVSS.
