Chaitanya Vaidyakiya Seva Sanstha & Sanshodhan Kendra Previously known as Chaitanya Dharmadaya Sanstha is a charitable trust vide Reg. No. MAH/710/2001/Pune,
Non-Government organization, which aims at providing support and medical treatment for orthopedic disabled children.
The Modern medical science has now techniques of treatment with revolutionary advancement. For example, Vishakhapatnam Surgery Technique has made it possible to treat orthopedically disabled children. Most of the disabled children are poor and from rural places and cannot afford cost of treatment. Chaitanya has realized the need to establish a specialized center dedicated for rehabilitation of disabled children along with multispecialty hospital.
Said organization is working without any Government Grant/support and provides free/concessional Medical treatment to poor and needy children.
According to National Sample Survey 1981, the estimated percentage of persons with disability in India was about 1.8% of total population and persons with locomotors disabilities was 0.8% of total population. The main objective of the Trust is to provide a comprehensive rehabilitation of disabled children including medical, social, vocational, occupational rehabilitation. It is dedicated to the welfare of disabled specially polio and [cerebral palsy] children. It provides free of cost treatment to disabled children of poor and rural section.
Society has launched POLIO DEFORMITY ERADICATION PROGRAME, aimed at making Maharashtra polio and polio deformity free. We have up till now conducted more than 10 surgery camps. The last camp was organized at Tarachand hospital on 16th December 2001, where 81 patients were operated by Vishakhapattanam technique.
Our president of society, Dr. Anant Bagul started these operations, taking inspiration & training from Dr. Adinarayan Rao. Dr. Bagul has operated on about 2000 polio & non-polio patients with deformities with remarkable success.
Though operations done by society are free, medicines, plaster, calipers & other recurring expenses still needs donations by individual or group or clubs. The Society needs donations, as there are still large no of poor patients waiting for basic monitory help. We are also planning to hold camps in rural area, where help is most needed.
