A delegation from Afghanistan, headed by the director general of its Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Disabled Sayed Hameed Ullah Sadat, visited the BMVSS centre here on friday and inspected the making of Jaipur Foot.
Founder and chief patron of BMVSS D R Mehta explained the technical aspects of the artificial limb to the delegation members.
During the discussion it was decided that the Afghan government will extend all help for holding the camp for which 25 technical persons would go to Kabul.
The BMVSS held similar camps in Kabul in 1996, 1997, 2003 and 2004 with the support and assistance of the Indian
government and benefited several hundred handicapped persons of Afghanistan.
