BMVSS is a non-religious, non-sectarian, non-political, non-governmental voluntary organisation for helping the handicapped. It is a registered society set up in 1975 which provides artificial limbs, calipers, crutches, walkers, wheel chairs, tricycles, hearing aid etc. totally free of cost. BMVSS is the world's largest organization for the handicapped.
2 % of India's one billion population suffer from disability, with .8 % suffering from 'locomotive disability' that is, the loss of a limb through polio, leprosy, train accidents, diabetes etc. There are 25,000 new amputees each year. People suffering from disability are usually illiterate and living below the poverty line.
Our technology of Jaipur artificial limbs and calipers is known all over the world. However, we are further improving it with the support of Stanford University, MIT (USA), and ISRO etc.
The Mumbai Center with its head office in Jaipur has started in 1993 with the primary objective of physical, economic, and social rehabilitation of people with disabilities, enabling them to regain their self-respect, mobility and human dignity so that they join the main stream of society as its useful members.
Donation amount will to reach out to more disabled people in the interior parts of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Goa.
In Maharashtra we need to cover the remotest parts of Chandrapur and Gadchiroli which are the Naxal infested areas, Melghat in Amaravati district , Akola, Beed, Parbhani and most of the Konkan region of the state.
We do almost 5000 limbs &calipers every year as along with railway and road accidents, the diabetes amputees are growing in number.
BMVSS needs funds for the ever increasing number of amputees and to look after their welfare by providing means &methods for their living.
All the government hospitals are provided with the wheelchairs for the patients whoever is in need.
With the help of Rs. 3000/- we can make a person walk on his feet and live independently.
It is rightly said, with your grace, 'Pangum Langhayate Girim.' Which means even a lame can cross the mountain.
