EXIM Bank To Help Support 1000 Amputees With Jaipur Foot In Afghanistan

Export-Import Bank of India (Exim Bank) flagged off its contribution towards helping 1000 amputees in Afghanistan get artificial feet by supporting Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti (BMVSS), the parent body of Jaipur Foot.

Jaipur Foot is the most widely used artificial foot / limb in the world. Yaduvendra Mathur, Chairman & Managing Director, Exim Bank flagged off the consignment of materials and components of Jaipur Foot to the National Disability Institute – Kabul (NDI) recently. The Bank is supporting BMVSS for setting up a permanent Jaipur Foot Centre at the NDI in Kabul, Afghanistan. It has provided a grant support of US$ 1,00,000 (approximately Rs 68 lakh) for the Jaipur Foot Project which includes support towards materials and components for fitting of 1000 artificial limbs in a year. In addition, a sum of US$ 25,000 (approximately Rs 17 lakh) has also been provided for training three NDI technicians in Jaipur for a period of three to four months.

The project formally commenced with the inception of the training program for the NDI technicians and flagging of the consignment of materials and components for the Jaipur Foot Centre to NDI in Kabul. DR Mehta, Founder and Chief Patron, BMVSS noted that although the organisation has held camps in Afghanistan in the past, this initiative would provide an enduring impact on the differently-abled citizens of Afghanistan.

In Afghanistan, Exim Bank has supported various project export contracts valued at nearly Rs. 900 crore. “These efforts of BMVSS and Exim Bank are aligned with the Indian policy of nurturing development partners for mutual growth. Supporting organisations like BMVSS having a global footprint, for socially oriented activities has provided a new dimension to Exim Bank’s participation in the development of India’s overseas partners,” said Mathur.
