Rotary Bangalore Peenya was chartered in the year 1983 with a group of 24 dedicated Rotarians as chartered members with an objective of implementing service projects.
Towards the above goal, in the last thirty two years, we have the following significant projects
JAIPUR FOOT CAMP
Jaipur Foot Camp has been conducted every year since its inception eighteen years ago, where the disabled people looking for their limb of life are provided with artificial limbs, calipers and crutches.
These are the people who are suffering from polio, or amputees of accident and gangrene. The heart breaking scene where people come crawling on their hands and legs, children being carried by their parents, patients coming on wheel chairs with hope in their eyes, and anxiety writ large on their faces, expecting their life to turn into a new leaf, believing that a miracle will happen. Some of them are advised corrective surgeries. They go back walking with the aids or with the satisfaction that somebody has assured them a better life, with the corrective surgeries, wheel chairs and tricycles to enable them to lead a normal life.
7480 Limbs, 16,366 Callipers, 6989 Crutches, 459 LN-4, 760 Wheel Chairs, 412 Tri Cycles, 875 Polio Corrective Surgeries & 70 Hip Replacements have been provided/conducted as part of our previous Camps. Total- 33, 411 have benefited so far.
