Speaking on the occasion, the Trustee of Adinath Jain Trust, Mr. Manoj Jain, said, “These grants are distributed to the poor and differently abled in memory of Smt. Kasturibai Kawad, with the support of her family members, Smt. Aashibai Ranulal, Mr. Devraj Gulecha. With a motto of creating and nurturing an inclusive society for the differently abled, we at Adinath Jain Trust have been organising periodical screening and distribution camps for providing artificial prosthetic mobility aids to people with movement disabilities for 43 years now. So far, we have benefitted over 12 lakh people and with today’s camp, we have transformed the lives of 600 more! Our actions stem from our strong belief that with such prosthetic mobility aids, not only will their quality of lives improve, but their confidence and social standing in the society will be elevated to the next level. Furthermore, this will help them seek right employment opportunities that will reduce their dependence on the family members, increase their savings and eventually make their future hopeful, sans the social stigma”.
