Sadly, the COVID pandemic has undermined out fundraising efforts this year. To date, our Board of directors and other companies have contributed $40,000 in special funding; however, we need more financial support to continue our work. So we are launching this challenge, we are challenging YOU to help us raise $40,000 to match what we have already received this year.
Transforming the lives of amputees in the developing world is not an easy task. Impoverished amputees are the victims of accidents, infections, substandard medical care, diabetes, war, and natural disasters. They are faced with many personal challenges and fitting them with high quality prosthetic legs is only the first step.
During the rehabilitation phase of treatment, LIMBS provides amputees with physical therapy as well as holistic emotional support as they transition to improved lives. It is extremely rewarding to see a new patient stand and take the first steps.
