With a resolution to assist the differently-abled individuals in Assam, a large-scale free Narayan Artificial Limb Measurement Camp will be held at Aashi Apsara, GS Road, Manipuri Basti, Paltan Bazaar, Guwahati, from 8 am to 6 pm on Sunday, May 12th. The camp will be officially inaugurated by Assam Governor Shri Gulab Chand Kataria at 9 am on May 12.

Chaubisa explained during the press conference held at the Press Club that during the camp, the specially trained and experienced prosthetic and orthotics doctors’ team from Sansthan will assess the differently-abled patients. They will conduct organized casting for lightweight and durable artificial limbs, taking precise measurements. Approximately two months later, Sansthan will organize a modular artificial limb distribution camp to provide them with a free fitting.
