Free prosthetic hand camp

VIJAYAWADA: Rotary Club of Vijayawada will organise a free prosthetic hand camp here at Rotary Children’s Auditorium premises in Gandhinagar on January 29. The camp is being organised with the support of Rotary International District 5110 of the USA.

The LN-4 hand, as it is called, is a mechanical and functional hand that can be fitted to any beneficiary whose forearm is amputated more than six months ago and is having at least a stump of 3 inches below the elbow. This is a first of its kind camp to be held in the region, as procuring prosthetic hands is very difficult compared to cosmetic hands.

Those who intend to make use of the opportunity should register their names on or before January 27. For further details, contact Rotary artificial limb project chairman G.V. Mohan Prasad on 98490-81622 or coordinator Krishna Mohan on 98661-46186.
