ISPO-INDIA is a group of Doctors, P&O Professionals and other persons interested in providing Rehabilitation Services, we are working in the rural areas of Bihar, where the number of physically challenged persons is very high. The professionals who are working in big cities, pool their resources to help very poor persons but due to limb fitted resources, we have succeeded in reaching only one percent of such population. This we have achieved by receiving occassional grants from Govt. of India under ADIP schemes, Rotary and other simmillar voluntary organisation. We want to take up a program on Post Polio Rehabilitation, if an organisation support us this will include identification, corrective surgery and Orthosis.
Additional Information & Comments
Bihar is among the weakest state, the highest number of disability is due to Polio we intend to take up programs of corrective surgery and Orthotic fitment and vocational counselling and seek supports by way of infrastructure and volunteers, accomodation to the volunteers will be provided with help from Rotarians and members of BIhar Orthopedic Association.
