The Indian-based organization — which supports physically disabled populations around the world by providing prosthetic limbs, calipers and other equipment free of charge — provided assistance and training to the Chaudhary Foundation in setting up the initiative.
Chaudhary Foundation officially started in January 2019 with two Artificial Limb Fitness Camps in Kathmandu and Nawalparasi, where over 50 beneficiaries received prosthesis legs at Norvic International Hospital in Kathmandu and another 450 at Sahaj Community Hospital in Nawalparasi.The demand for these services became apparent during the camps, with an average of 15 beneficiaries served daily and another 100,000+ limb amputees across Nepal.
Because of its need and the camps’ success, Chaudhary Foundation partnership with Madhyapur District Hospital, a government hospital in Nawalpur district for the operation of the permanent center for prosthetic limb fitment.CG Sabal Center has started its services on Feb 24, 2022, in the premises of Madhyabindu District Hospital, Kawasoti, Nawalpur in Gandaki Province. Since the establishment, the center has been providing prosthetic limbs, calipers and other equipment to more than 75 plus individuals as of now, for free of charge.
Chaudhary Group had funded costs associated with its establishment, including space, equipment, installation, staff, training, etc.
The goal of Sabal Center is to support Nepal’s physically disabled population by providing artificial limbs and other aids to as many individuals in need throughout the year rather than only during the short-lived fitment camps. The specific objectives of the center are to be able to provide beneficiaries with artificial limb choices and provide past beneficiaries with post-service facilities.
Due to the fact that Madhyabindu District Hospital is the only hospital in Nepal offering prosthetic limb fitting services, people from all over the nation travel to for the hospital’s services.
