WHO WE ARE
The vision of Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti (BMVSS)is an organisation with a difference. Built on a sensitive,
humane and patient-first social philosophy and value system, the foremost concern of BMVSS is that the dignity and self-respect of patients
must be maintained or enhanced at all costs.
Free assistance: BMVSS provides artificial limbs / calipers, physical aids and appliances, and assistance totally free of cost because most
of its patients live below the poverty line; to ask them to pay would be inhumane and unethical. Rich patients generally give donations.
Help, not charity: While the assistance is given free, BMVSS emphasises that the services are not charity but help to brothers and sisters,
so that the self-respect of patients is preserved.
Equality: BMVSS assistance is offered without discrimination on the grounds of gender, caste, creed, religion or geography.
Respect: Patients are treated humanely and with respect; personal attention is paid to them.
Empowerment: Patients are empowered by providing them with limbs, assistance, etc, which give them mobility and also restores their economic
capabilities. Further, on a selective basis, BMVSS also provides vocational training to young amputees and assistance for self-employment.
All these provide dignity as well.
Accessibility: BMVSS holds outreach programmes and rehabilitation camps to reach out to handicapped people living
in remote areas. Besides this, any disabled from any part of India or elsewhere can access the services of BMVSS.
