Two years ago, Wajid Miya was boarding a train when the crowd pushed him onto the tracks and he was run over. The doctors went in for an amputation of his right leg and also removed three fingers from his left foot. He was fitted with an artificial limb, got meals and rudimentary therapy, all free of cost on Thursday at the Victory Playground, Chaderghat. Hobbling on a walker with the help of the just fixed ‘Jaipur Foot’ he now plans to get back and start his retail cloth business.
The camp at Victory Playground Chaderghat was inaugurated on Thursday and will be on till February 2 between 10 am and 6 pm. “Everything is free here,” says Veena Jain, a member, “but they would need to come early and get themselves registered. It takes three hours to make a leg or a hand and then the group of doctors, volunteers and social workers have to train the patient.”
