Description : The ICRC has been supporting the Jaffna Jaipur Centre for Disability Rehabilitation with material assistance and technical advice since 1994, with an interruption between 2003 to 2007. It supplies the Centre with raw materials such as polypropylene and components for building artificial limbs and orthotic devices and provides staff with professional training in prosthetics and orthotics.

Physiotherapy training by ICRC specialists for JJCDR staff has enabled them to teach beneficiaries how to use their limbs once fitted. The JJCDR offers a broad range of services, including the provision of prosthetics, orthotics, various mobility aids (wheelchairs, tricycles, crutches), physiotherapy and microcredit and financial support for disabled persons.
