Amar Seva Sangam
To empower Differently Abled citizens by establishing “Valley for the differently abled” as a Rehabilitation and Development Centre for the region and developing models for self-help initiatives.
Work and Achievements
Amar Seva Sangam (ASSA) often takes bold and innovative initiatives and successfully implements various programs for the rehabilitation and development of differently abled persons in the region.
One such initiative is our Medical Testing Unit (MTU) which is a complete physiotherapy centre, set up in 1998. It acts as a nerve centre and is extensively used by the families of physically challenged.
This is quite a popular centre where not only the physically challenged, but also other rural population affected with orthopedic problems, stroke and other neurological issues come to utilize the services offered by ASSA. Initially, due to poor awareness about physiotherapy among people and shortage of equipment’s availability, the service users were few.
Now there are 6 qualified physiotherapists and one occupational therapist delivering their services. Due to awareness and availability of new advanced exercise and electrotherapy equipment, service user numbers are on the rise over the years and present MTU centre at ASSA is unable to cope up and cater to more patients.
Expansion of this Unit has become necessary and ASSA plans to raise additional construction of about 2,834 sq. ft., costing about Rs. 70.50 lakhs, and purchase equipment and other infrastructure costing around Rs. 24 lakhs to meet the growing demands and serve the physically challenged still better.
It will have 7 rooms and 4 toilets along with corridor and ramp.
