Rotary clubs working together on project
The Jaipur Limb is an artificial leg, developed at the Mahaveer hospital in Jaipur, India.
The unique component is the Jaipur foot, a combination of wood and various densities of rubber vulcanised into a realistic looking brown foot.
Jaipur limbs can be made and fitted for as little as £30.
Rotary Club of Aylesbury Hundreds president Roger King said: “The principal activity of the project is to raise funds in order to finance limb camps and limb centres in Africa, the Indian sub-continent and other areas of the world in need of help, as determined by the trustees.
“This is achieved through donations from rotary clubs, inner wheel clubs, other organisations and private individuals.”
In 32 years of the project donations of limbs have taken place in many African and Asian countries.
