Speaker Meeting - the Speaker’s Host is Ian Smedley

Tue, Sep 22nd 2020 at 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

The Speaker this evening is Margaret Webb. Margaret will be telling us about the Jaipur Limb Group.


In many developing countries there are tens of thousands of people who suffer as a result of amputated or deformed limbs. The causes of this misery are many, but include birth defects, communicable diseases such as leprosy and polio, non-communicable diseases such as vascular disorders and diabetes, snake bites, and traumatic injuries as a result of accidents, natural disasters and armed conflict.

A burden on the family

With severe limitations to what they are able to do, people disabled in this way become a burden to families who already have very meagre resources, and are often condemned to spend their lives begging on the streets.

The aims of Rotary Jaipur Limb are:

  1. The preservation and protection of health, particularly for the relief of amputees and other limbless persons, including the provision of prostheses and the rehabilitation of individuals.
  2. The relief of the poor and needy and such other charitable purposes the trustees may determine at a properly constituted meeting of the trust executive board.

Its principal activity is the raising of funds in order to finance limb camps and limb centres in Africa, the Indian sub-continent and other areas of the world in need of help, as determined by the trustees. This is achieved through donations from Rotary clubs, Inner Wheel clubs, other organisations and private individuals.

In its 32 year history successful projects have been carried out in Benin, Ghana, Haiti, India, The Ivory Coast, Kenya, Malawi, Nepal, Nigeria, Rwanda, Sri Lanka and Tanzania.
