EAM Sushma Swaraj launches India for Humanity initiative in New Delhi

@MEAIndia
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj launched India for Humanity initiative in New Delhi as part of 150th Birth Anniversary celebrations of Mahatma Gandhi being held over the next one year. 

With its focus on Mahatma Gandhi's philosophy of compassion, caring and service to humanity, ‘India for Humanity’ features a year-long series of artificial limb fitment camps in a number of countries spanning the globe. 

The External Affairs Ministry is collaborating for this with charitable organization Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti, BMVSS. Founded in 1975 and better known by its trademark limb Jaipur Foot, BMVSS is among the world’s largest organisations for the fitment of artificial limbs and till date has served over 1.73 million amputees. 

The limb fitment camps, which aim to provide for the physical, economic and social rehabilitation of the differently-abled around the world by helping them regain their mobility and dignity to become self-respecting and productive members of the society, will be fully sponsored by Ministry. 

Speaking on the occasion, Mrs Swaraj said, the initiative will touch the lives of thousands of people who are in need of assistance and will span over one-year covering several countries. 

The camps will be initially held in 12 countries identified through the Missions with financial support of Indian government. 

The larger aim is to provide for the physical, economic and social rehabilitation of the differently-abled around the world by helping them regain their mobility and dignity to become self-respecting and productive members of society.
