On 30th August, 2018, our school organized an educational visit to NILD (National Institution for Loco motor Disabilities) for the students of Netaji House. NILD is an autonomous government institution which was established in 1978 at Bon Hooghly. The objective of NILD is to provide service to the orthopedically handicapped people and to conduct and sponsor research related to the rehabilitation of the people with Loco motor disabilities. We visited different sections of NILD and also the laboratories where artificial limbs are being manufactured. We spoke to one of the patients, named, Mr. Souvik Kar and also to Mr. Nayan Roy Chowdhury from the administration to get some idea about the services rendered by the institution. Dr. Abhishek Biswas, the Director of the Institution asked us to spread awareness in the society about the problems of people with Loco motor disabilities and about the role of the organization to help them.
