Inclusivity & Empowerment
Mobility is one of the most essential elements of being independent and artificial mobility aids help to overcome dependence and give confidence to the beneficiary to do something gainful in life. Arcil has provided financial assistance to Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti (BMVSS), Jaipur to provide artificial limbs, callipers, crutches, tricycles, wheelchairs and hearing aids to 486 needy beneficiaries with mobility and hearing impairment, which will help each of these beneficiaries to walk back with dignity to a normal self-respecting and productive life.
BMVSS is the world’s largest organisation providing artificial limbs across the globe and the parent body of the world-famous Jaipur Foot. Though it is a Pan India organisation with 27 branches, its mission is to provide prosthetics and other mobility aids and appliances to as many disabled, as possible, at its centres, and through its outreach programmes and rehabilitation camps across the globe. The Jaipur Knee developed by BMVSS in association with Stanford University has been hailed by Time Magazine as one of the best 50 inventions of the world.
