On Friday 25th 2011 BSAA hand-over a mobile unit for carriage the artificial legs for disabled to the Prostheses Foundation of H.R.H. The Princess Mother (มูลนิธิขาเทียม ในสมเด็จพระศรีนครินทราบรมชนนี).


The unit, made from 40' HC plus renovating, including chassis is a shared donations from BSAA members and non-members for helping the Foundation to solve their transport problems.

Established in 1992, the Prostheses Foundation has gone out 115 times to various places in urban areas to provide the artificial legs to 16,152 disabled people. For each trip, they have to use 3 trucks (6-wheels) for carriage the artificial legs and accessories to fix for 150-200 disabled people. This 40’ mobile unit would save the expense and make the transportation more convenient.
