Offering support to them in a fitting way

Availability of right callipers is a boon to physically challenged polio victims to overcome their disability.

Nearly 70 affected persons, in and around Madurai, are being provided with lightweight callipers by Mukti, a Chennai-based voluntary organisation.

More than 100 callipers would be provided during the camp being held from March 12 to 19.

This is the fifth such camp held in Madurai by Mukti, which has helped in setting up permanent artificial limb and calliper workshops across the country.

In Madurai, also joining hands in the camp, are Srivatsav Orthocare and Deiva Socio Services, who are helping in giving correct size callipers to adults and children.

The project has an overseas touch too with Rotary and Inner Wheel Clubs in United Kingdom and other individuals extending support to Meena Dadha, the founder of Mukti, in conducting the Madurai camp.
