Taking A Stand So That Others Can
LIMBS International engages communities and transforms lives through affordable, sustainable prosthetic solutions.
In developing countries—where two feet are often the only means of transportation—the loss of a leg is just the first step in a cycle of loss that includes the loss of jobs, friends, family, independence, dignity and hope.
The heart of the problem lies in the fact that the best prosthetic legs for amputee are found in the areas of the world where the demand is the lowest. According to the World Health Organization, this leaves 40 million amputees in the developing world without access to even the most basic prosthetic legs.
The challenges are huge…but there is hope.
