AM Foundation, the CSR (corporate social responsibility) arm of AM International, Singapore conducted a medical camp to distribute prosthetic legs to needy patients free of cost.

With over 50 patients attending the camp, a total of over 110 patients have been provided with this facility since its start.

The noble initiative started in the year 2017 till date has distributed free prosthetic legs to more than 110 differently abled people. The camp has a due process of collaborating with the district administration and department of Different Abled who provide the names of the eligible patients by sourcing it from their official records. It usually consists of people living within a 25 kilometers radius, and the names are provided through the state government database. 

The prosthetic limbs are purchased from the Rotary Club of Coimbatore Midtown through their service project "Walk Again" where it manufactures limbs, calipers and crutches locally.

Each prosthetic limb has a life of 2-3 years, and patients can seek a replacement. According to publicly available data, India today has 26 million who are differently abled forming 2.1% percentage of its population. At AM Foundation we promise to create awareness and resources with an endeavor that they can lead a normal, healthy and productive life
