The Guardian, London (January 17, 2002), and Dawn, Karachi (January 19, 2002):
"As aid pours into Afghanistan, a special consignment from India is probably
bringing more happiness to Kabul than the rest of the world's cargo combined….The consignment consists of 1,000, pieces of the Jaipur Foot, a prosthesis
named after the city where it was developed in 1970. It was taken on a special Indian Air Force plane to Kabul……As goodwill gestures go, it has probably earned
India more appreciation than any amount of diplomacy…. Along with the consignment went a team from Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti (BMVSS),
a Jaipur charity that provides artificial legs for the poor. The Jaipur Foot is a household name among people who live in the world's many war zones. From Afghanistan
to Angola, the below-the-knee limb is famous for transforming the lives of millions of landmine amputees."
John Bryson, US Secretary of Commerce, addresses amputees on a visit to the BMVSS centre
"I commend you profoundly for the extraordinary humanitarian and extraordinary creative, breakthrough work done here at Jaipur Foot.
It does and will further advance welfare here and around our entire global people."
Justice Dalvir Bhandari, Judge at the International Court of Justice, visits the BMVSS centre
"I was deeply impressed by the work of Jaipur Foot carried by the team of DR Mehta. Deserves great appreciation. He is doing true service to humanity."
