Camp in Chennai to provide artificial limbs

A camp is to be held in Chennai from Dec 15-19th, to provide artificial limbs, crutches and calipers to the needy, FREE of cost.

It is famously known as the "Jaipur Foot". The limbs, crutches and calipers are provided by an organisation called BMVSS. This is sponsored by one of our global vendors DOW CHEMICALS.

The camp was successfully held in Bombay and Pune with over 1000 people benefiting in a course of 5 days. Till date, over a million people have benefited. The organisation has been recognised by the UN and has been running successfully for over 30 years. Please refer to <> for more details.

What can u do?
o Please find attached the pamphlet for the camp with this mail, which is in English as well as in Tamil. Request you to forward it to your friends.
o If you personally know of someone who could benefit from the camp, please inform them to visit the camp. The Jaipur foot is provided free to everyone irrespective of gender, religion, location, age or financial status.
o If you can make a copy of the poster and put it up in your apartment, that would also be very helpful.
o NOT LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS. Though we know that many of you might want to come and help out, it is strictly not open for volunteers. Your support can be by helping to spread the word.
This is your chance to help someone get a new life.

Thank you so much!!
