An estimated 2.13% of the Indian population experience some form of impairment or disability (census 2001). Of these, it is estimated, that over 50% of them suffer from ‘locomotors’ problems.
Mumbai and its suburbs, with a population of 25 million, could be home to 250,000 of those suffering from some ‘locomotors’ problems
Many of them could benefit with the help of relatively simple solutions like providing a Jaipur Foot, Calipers, Wheelchairs or just Crutches.
At our first Jaipur Foot and Mobility Camp earlier this year, over 80 people benefitted from it.
The highlight of the Camp was to watch a 7 year old child, Abdul, walk for the first time in hislife! The joy on Abdul’s face and that of his family was a sight to behold. It was an overwhelming moment that brought tears to those present.
The Jaipur Foot is priceless. It gives immensesatisfaction toput someone back on his/her feet for just Rs.3000.

We have Sponsored SumitPatil, “TEAM AGNI” to represent our Country and our Club, The Rotary Club of Bombay Worli, in RAAM.
He will be cycling for a Cause, without a pause …. CAUSE CYCLOTHON.
His two feet will cycle 3000 miles in 12 days, through grueling conditions to put many lives back on their feet. One Jaipur Foot for every one mile of RAAM – at least 3000 Jaipur Foot donors.
