Narayan Seva Sansthan to organize free modular artificial limb camp in Guwahati

Udaipur-based NGO, Narayan Seva Sansthan, is organizing a ‘free artificial limb camp’ for the differently-abled in Guwahati on May 12, wherein as many as 800 participants are expected to get their measurements done for free artificial limb.

The registration for the event is ongoing and final medical examination and measurement will be held at Aashi Apsara Hall in Paltan Bazaar, Guwahati on May 12.

Stating this, director trustee of the Sansthan, Devendra Chaubisa, revealed that Assam governor Gulab Chand Kataria will inaugurate the programme on Sunday.

Addressing a press conference on May 9, Chaubisa highlighted the NGO’s steadfast commitment to liberating individuals who have become differently-abled due to accident or illnesses, freeing them from a life of disability.

Inspired by the vision of Padma Shri awardee and founder Kailash Manav, the Narayan Seva Sansthan has been serving humanity for the past 39 years. With a resolution to assist the differently-abled individuals in Assam, the free Narayan Artificial Limb Measurement Camp will be held on Sunday.

Chaubisa said that during the camp, the specially trained and experienced prosthetic and orthopedic doctors’ team from the Sansthan will assess the differently-abled patients. They will conduct organized casting for lightweight and durable artificial limbs, taking precise measurements. “Approximately two months later, the Narayan Seva Sansthan will organize a modular artificial limb distribution camp to provide them with a free fitting,” he informed.

Chaubisa mentioned that registrations for more than 625 individuals have been completed thus far, with an expectation of attendance from over 800 people at the camp.

Camp coordinator and in-charge, Achal Singh Bhati, informed that the patients and their families attending the camp will be provided with complimentary meals, tea, and snacks. Bhati also mentioned that distinguished personalities and various community groups from Guwahati have been invited. More than 30 organizations, including the Marwari Sammelan of Northeast, Marwari Youth Forum of Northeast, Shri Guwahati Goushala, Agrawal Sabha, Maheshwari Sabha, Shwetambar Jain Terapanth Sabha, all their women’s wings, Shri Digambar Jain, Rotary Club, Haryana Charitable Trust, Bihar Foundation, Brahmin Sabha, Shri Guru Singh Sabha, and others, are affiliated with the Narayan Seva Sansthan as voluntary partners.

Bhagwan Prasad Gaur, media and public relations officer of the Sansthan urged the differently-abled individuals to avail maximum benefits by participating in this camp. He emphasized that those interested in participating should bring their Aadhaar card, disability certificate, and two photos showcasing their disability.
