CAPTION: Under the Chamkol programme, every disabled member of the community has an Individual Health Plan (IHP). Shantamurthy contracted polio when he was six or seven years old. It left him without the ability to walk. Mobility India supported him to undergo surgery. Following the surgery, its Rehabilitation Therapy Assistants (RTAs) worked with him on an exercise regime, and this helped the pain subside. Since then, he has learned to walk again with the aid of calliper splints. LOCATION: Kallahalli (village), Kasaba (hobli), Chamrajnagar (district), Karnataka (state), India. INDIVIDUAL(S) PHOTOGRAPHED: Shanthamurthy.
