Buddhist foundation donates artificial legs

Jakarta Post, June 24, 2009

JAMBI, Indonesia -- The Buddha Amithaba Foundation of Jambi has once again donated dozens of artificial legs to disabled people in several local regencies.

Foundation executive Asiang said the legs were donated to disabled people in Kerinci, Muara Bungo, Tebo, Tanjungjabung Barat, Muara Jambi, Batanghari and Jambi city.

"The legs are made in Jakarta. So, it's take a long time. The disabled who have earlier registered can now collect the legs," Asiang said Tuesday.
