After the inauguration ceremony held on July 10 at Vinh Phuc Convention Center, the camp and temporary workshop have been established in Lac Viet Friendship Hospital, which has made available space and other support in its modern facilities.
Accordingly, the BMVSS team will set up the Jaipur Foot Artificial Limb Fitment Camp in Phu Tho province, when completing its work in Vinh Phuc province in about two weeks.
In implementation of the Joint Statement issued during the state visit of Vietnamese President Tran Dai Quang to India in March 2018, the Embassy of India in Hanoi in coordination with People’s Committees of Vinh Phuc and Phu Tho provinces and the BMVSS is organizing the Jaipur Foot Artificial Limb Fitment Camp in the months of July-August 2018 to provide rehabilitation services and the prosthetic Jaipur Foot to around 500 Vietnamese people in Vinh Phuc and Phu Tho.
The idea of organizing the Jaipur Foot Artificial Limb Fitment Camp in Vinh Phuc and Phu Tho provinces received encouragement from Nguyen Thi Hien, spouse of State President Tran Dai Quang, according to Indian Ambassador to Vietnam Parvathaneni Harish.
During the state visit of Vietnamese President Tran Dai Quang to India, Nguyen Thi Hien visited BMVSS’s Jaipur Foot Center in Delhi and reviewed their Jaipur Foot, Limb fitment and rehabilitation services. She expressed her desire that persons with disability in Vietnam be rehabilitated with Jaipur Foot and Limb, Harish added.
