Exactly 28,549 physically handicapped and hearing impaired persons of all ages benefitted at the 2009 Mega Medical and Mobility Camp held in Palitana, Gujarat from December 23, 2009 to January 9, 2010.  The Camp was organized by JAINA's Mumbai-based partner, Ratna Nidhi Charitable Trust, which planned and executed the mind-boggling logistics for medical experts and volunteers to effectively serve needy patients (and their families) suffering from loss of limb function (mainly due to polio), or loss of hearing function.  Treated patients received calipers for support, Jaipur Foot artificial limbs, wheel-chairs, tricycles or hearing aids. The event was graced by political, religious, JAINA and other NGO leaders who all expressed their unequivocal support for this major act of compassion.  North American Jains were the single largest donor group, contributing over US$80,000 in this unique collaboration with Jains from over a dozen diaspora countries.  A Big Thanks to all donors for their generosity which has enabled a dramatically new life for the beneficiaries.  View selected photos from this truly life-changing event...
