Thank you to everyone that helped fulfill our goal of giving 25 Children in Asia the Ability to Walk! 

We could not have achieved this mission without you!

Since the end of the GlobalGiving challenge, we have treated 25 children in Asia and are planning to treat more. Treatment included seven surgeries, seven clubfoot corrections, six orthotic braces, five prosthetic limbs, as well as providing rehabilitation to all patients.  

Children are referred to our program by our implementation partners in the field. We evaluate their condition and deliver the appropriate treatment needed. We fully cover all costs relating to the treatment and rehabilitation of each child. Our goal is to provide high-quality continuous care until the age of 18 for children treated under our program. We also teach medical professionals in our program countries innovative othopedic surgical techniques, prosthetic design and rehabilitation-practices to help bridge the gap in medical care between the developed and developing worlds.

Because of your continued support we can accept more children into our programs and help more children walk towards a better future. 

Again, we cannot thank you enough for your love and support in helping children with limb disabilities in the developing world walk.
