Up to this point, GRF has distributed 2500 artificial limbs, with the youngest recipient being only 15 months old. He mentioned that a van donated by Indian Oil in 2018 has been converted into a maintenance van with the contribution of equipments from Jaipur Foot and it goes    to the doorstep of the beneficiaries rather than them coming at their Centre and hence creating lot of ease for them.

The MD of IOML presented an Indian Oil Rhino to the Honorable President of Mauritius and also shared about the initiatives taken by Indian Oil for the conservation of Rhinos in India.

Dr. Parsuramen presented a symbol of Jaipur Foot to all the dignitaries.
