There are two specific goals for MESA/LIMBS partnership:
1) Raise awareness about the amazing things MESA students are doing in schools throughout your state (such as their prosthetic arm projects), and spark student interest in joining a MESA club.
2) Show the real-world connection of how LIMBS is using low-cost technologies to change the lives of amputees throughout the developing world, and give students the opportunity to be a part of that change in a tangible way.
This partnership raises funds to provide a LIMBox (complete leg system) to an amputee at one of LIMBS’ partner clinics.
Students will also find out where each of their funded legs goes and will receive a picture and a story of an amputee whose life has been changed because of their efforts. To date, students have provided hundreds of legs to amputees in over a dozen countries!
