Mobility camp to provide callipers, Jaipur foot, crutches, tricycle, wheelchair and hearing aid to people who cannot afford them
Rehabilitation Camp for Differently Abled in Feb
The state government in collaboration with civil society is starting a rehabilitation programme for differently–abled people in Ahmedabad. A mobility camp, under the public–private partnership model, will soon be implemented in February 2011.

The differently abled people, especially orthopaedical and hearing impaired, who are poor and cannot afford to buy special instruments such as callipers, Jaipur foot, crutches, wheelchair, tricycle, hearing aid, ortho or other required support, will be provided with the same at the camps, to help them live life without impediments.

Mumbai–based Ratna Nidhi Charitable Trust, which has distributed 11,6,416 supporting machines to more than 22,000 physically challenged people in some villages and districts across Gujarat till now, will implement a mobility camp with the help of state government in the city in March to rehabilitate disabled people.

There are millions of disabled people who live below the poverty line and seek support from society and the government. It is believed that by 2012–13, the entire state will have no sight of disabled man in troubling situation.

Mobility camp will identify such individuals and will make a computerised registration system to keep their records or details safely. This effort will probably start after completing the project in Jamnagar (December 15 to 30) and later in Bhavnagar.
