WORLD DISABILITY DAY 2013

This year, we conducted our first camp on 31.10.2013 by visiting Amlamethi (Bali), Bidya Zone, Sundarban islands, West Bengal, India. This visit was facilitated by a NGO, Nature Environment and Wildlife Society (NEWS) which works in these areas and is committed to protect and conserve wildlife, ecology & environment. News is also committed to engage and help the marginalized community of the Sunderban area, who are majorly dependent on the use of natural resources in and outside the protected areas. Via the village panchayat, the villagers were informed in advance about the purpose of our visit. The News secretary, Mr Biswajit Roy Chowdhury himself accompanied two of our faculties, Dr Anwesh Pradhan and Dr Bodhisatwa Maity from Kolkata. The distance from Kolkata to Amlamethi is approximately 100 km and the camp dominated the entire day. The villagers were screened for physical disabilities for eventual distribution of mobility aids. Although physical handicap and disability had been mentioned emphatically, the requirement of mobility aids was limited as most of the persons who attended the camp were visually disabled. The total number of patients screened were 50, of which 5 persons will receive mobility aids ( tri-cycle, crutches, wheel-chair, walker). The aids have been ordered and will be distributed as soon as they are received from the dealer.

Another disability camp on 1.12.13 was conducted at Nabadwip, Nadia district by the Nabadwip Bakultala Vidyalaya PraktanChhatra Sammilanee which is the alumni of the Bakultala Vidyalaya. The alumni works to uplift the current students of the school as well as assist and help students by providing vocational courses to enable employment. It does social work as well, and so organising the camp was within its framework. This camp was well attended by approximately 70 patients with physical disabilities. Quite a few heartbreaking as well as encouraging cases were seen.

A little boy (4 years old) with Cerebral Palsy, whose all four limbs were paralysed, lost his mother last July when his younger brother was born. The father had the responsibility of looking after two children, where one was a spastic quadriplegic. Yet as they waited for their turn, the father kept playing with the child and the child kept giggling. He had a cute naughty look on his face. His requirement was of a special chair which we shall provide for him.

We saw individuals with congenital bone malformations, untreated because of lack of money and guidance. Then there was this elderly man who has been moving around with an untreated dislocated hip. He was too poor to bear the expense of a surgery.

We felt pleased to spend time with these people, to help them, to encourage them and in some cases learn on how to cope with life despite severe problems from them as well.

We have placed an order for the appropriate aids and then will visit these places again to distribute the disability aids.
