more-in

The world famous Jaipur Foot will launch a centre in Mauritius.

The centre will be located at Port Louise in collaboration with Global Rainbow Foundation, an organisation that works for the disadvantaged and the physically-challenged, and provides them with medical aid.

D.R. Mehta, founder and chief patron of the Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata (BMVSS), an organisation for the physically-challenged, will sign a Memorandum of Understanding on Sunday to start the centre in Mauritius.

The GRF will launch its two-phase Jaipur Foot project which would be called “gift of mobility.”

It will set up a Jaipur Foot artificial limb centre at Port Louise, which will be called “Mahaveer Indradhanush Artificial Limb Centre of Mauritius”.

Mr. Mehta, who left for Mauritus on Saturday, said that the BMVSS will provide technical support and technical upgradation free of cost to the new centre. He said a similar Centre will shortly be opened at Kabul with the assistance of the Afghanistan government.

He said the BMVSS recently conducted two camps in Mauritius with the association of GRF and benefitted 400 amputees by providing them mobility.

Inspired by the success of the camps, the GRP proposed to set up a permanent centre with trained personnel.
