Anantapur Off The Beaten Path: 8 reviews and 15 photos
Conditions in Anantapur are very hard and the rate of disability is very high in the area. Some orthopedic workshops have been built: prosthesis, crutches, etc will improve the conditions of disabled people. Trauma specialists, orthopedists and physiotherapists work together on this program. Most of the times the biggest problem is distance. After putting the prosthesis children need a period of adaptation and daily sessions of physiotherapy are necessary. That means walking lots of kilometers to these centers from their home village which is very hard. Education is very important here and after the first sessions the professionals teach mothers how to do these exercises to their children at home.
