September 28, 2021
In September 2021, Jindal Stainless Foundation, in partnership with Cure International India Trust (CIIT), launched a Clubfoot Disability Elimination Program in Haryana and Odisha for children born with the condition of clubbed feet. This is done in line with Foundations objective to help every individual, child or adult, live a dignified and optimal life.
In Haryana, clinics were set up to offer counseling services along with treatment at Maharaja Agrasen Civil Hospital, Hisar. In Odisha, CIIT is working in association with the District Early Intervention Centre (DEIC), Shishu Bhawan, Cuttack. The organisation is providing special orthotic toes to children and also bridging the gap between parents and doctors by arranging training and awareness sessions.
