Ashirvad Support Camp for the disabled – Barwala

Raj Saubhag Ashram has been consistently organising support camps to distribute equipment and daily living aids to the physically disabled, poor people living in villages.

Sponsored by the Mumbai based Bhalani family, this support camp was held in Barwala, Botad on 20th December 2015.

Two months before of the scheduled camp, volunteers of Ashirwad Trust for the Disabled, Sayla, extensively toured sixty-five (65) villages around Barwala, collecting names of disabled that needed to be given daily living aids like wheel chairs, prosthetic limbs, hearing aids etc free of cost.  The volunteers visited villages in Barwala, Valbhipur, Ranpur, Dhandhuka among others and a total of 800 disabled people were shortlisted for a diagnosis session with consulting doctors.

Based on advice from doctors, 409 people were given equipment and daily living aids free of cost on the 20th December in the presence of Pujya Bhaishree and donor family.
