In December 2021, MUNPL in collaboration with Artificial Limbs Manufacturing Corporation of India (ALIMCO) organized an ‘Artificial Limbs Distribution’ camp where artificial limbs were provided to many disabled people from nearby villages with the aim of empowering them. help them become self-sufficient.”
For the past three months, MUNPL has held a screening camp before the distribution camp where doctors have taken measurements of all beneficiaries so that limbs can be adjusted easily and correctly.

Villagers from eight villages, Kodhar, Dharwara, Niriya, Bijora, Pipraon, Saliya Khurd were covered and people from six villages participated in the camp.
Lalaji, a middle-aged man from Dharwara village, said, “In 2016, I lost my limb in a road accident. I consulted a renowned doctor in Prayagraj, had many surgeries and took many medications, but all my efforts and hard earned money were in vain. The infection spread and the same doctor advised me to amputate my whole leg. To ease my pain, I did as he said and my status was changed from able-bodied to disabled. Lalaji came to the MUNPL medical camp with the help of a walker in order to get his artificial limb.
He added: “After the amputation, I couldn’t do anything. I also couldn’t go to my agricultural field, or find work to feed my family. Then, in December 2021, I learned that Meja Urja Nigam, the power station near our village, had organized a medical camp to help disabled people like me by providing them with artificial limbs. And now I can walk properly and do my daily household activities without help from others. And above all, I have a job and I can support my family financially,” he added.
