Back in December 2010, Oshwal Association of the UK raised c£150,000 to help the underprivileged in Jamnagar, India, as part of worldwide efforts by Oshwal and provided over 31,000 items of aid, such as artificial foot and hand aids, crutches, waist, collar & knee belts, tricycles and wheelchairs, hearing aids, etc. and in so doing the lives of many underprivileged was improved.

As part of 2018, when our Association will be celebrating 50 golden years in the UK, our community has embarked upon putting together another medical camp to provide many items to aid the disabled and those with special needs as well as to cater for other medical needs such as eye, dental and health.

The medical camp will be held in February 2018 at Oshwal Centre, in Jamnagar, India, and we are aiming to raise c£50,000+ of funds to help us host this medical camp.
