Jindal Stainless Foundation takes initiative to eradicate clubfoot in Odisha

January 17, 2023    



Jindal Stainless Foundation, in collaboration with CURE International India, has been working relentlessly to eradicate the problem of clubfoot in the state of Odisha. Clubfoot is a common birth defect in which the baby’s foot is twisted out of shape or position as the tissues connecting the muscles to the bone are shorter than usual. Every year, over 30,000 children are born with the disease in India. 

50 kids are currently undergoing tenotomy procedures, followed by casting and bracing under the guidance of trained medical staff, under this project. The project runs in Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Post Graduate Institute of Paediatrics (SVPPGIP), popularly known as Sishu Bhawan in Cuttack, Odisha.
