The Centre for Handicapped (CFH) was set up in 1992 with the support of the Rotary Clubs of Kandy and of Enkonping (Sweden) and the Rotary Foundation and other Governmental and Non-governmental organizations. It provides free, custom built artificial limbs, orthoses, wheelchairs and other mobility devices to under privileged people with disability. The Centre is an independent entity but members of the Club continue to serve on its Board, participate in its projects and help find partners and funding for its activities, including through Rotary. It has helped more than 15,000 physically impaired persons since it was established
