Jaipur, May 4 : An exporter in Jaipur is supplying traditional dolls for cancer-affected and destitute children in the United States.

After its distribution to these ill kids is completed, the remaining dolls are sold to various outlets to raise funds for charitable organisations.

The Rajasthani dolls have been outsourced by an American charitable organisation.

"A lot of charitable societies are associated with these dolls. Some of them are working for the welfare of unwanted children and some are working for the children suffering with cancer. These societies distribute some of these dolls among children and the rest are used to raise funds for these children," said Anshul Saxena, an exporter of dolls.

Manufactured by local women artisans, these dolls are liked by American children.

All these dolls are dressed like doctors attending to their patients. These are made of a soft fabric to prevent any harm to the kids. The dolls have been dressed as per western style so as to look familiar to the U.S children.

Around 30,000 dolls are annually exported in the U.S's charitable societies, Anshul added.

The opportunity to be part of a cause related to cancer-affected children and unwanted kids gives tremendous joy to the women workers employed here at the factory.

"We make these dolls for the cancer patients. When they see these dolls they forget their pain and start playing with them," said Shushila, a doll making artisan.
