Camp for the disabled in Rajkot in January 2016

Naginbhai Jagada along with his friends at Arpan Foundation and Bharat Vikas Parishad will be holding Jaipur Foot Camp in Rajkot in January 2016.


Message from Naginbhai:

This time we will rent buses to go to specific villages and bring poor disabled persons to Rajkot for measurements and determine his/her need for mobility devices and
take them back to their villages after they have become mobile.

 

Based on this information, we plan to give prosthetic, calipers, wheel chairs and tricycles at no cost to the poor disabled persons.

 

Each tricycle cost $70 and we will plan to give 50 or more tricycles if we are successful in raising sufficient fund.

 

Our proposed Plan:

We will plan to give food kits to needy women.

 

We are also planning to support high school education of few bright and poor boy/girl students to help them to qualify for higher education in engineering and medical colleges.
Total cost is estimated to be around Rs.6 to 7 lacs or Rs.US$ 9,600 to US$ 11,200 assuming exchange rate of Rs.62.5 per US$.
