We recently hosted the members of the GlobalGiving team at the JADMC. They toured the Prosthetics Department, led by two fully trained and liensed prosthetics manufacturers who follow patients from start to finish. They first custom fit each patient, make the prosthetics themselves, then refer them to the rehabilitation department so the recipient is educated about care and proper use.The cataract services are going strong, with hundreds (and this goes for prosthetics as well) of patients traveling from all parts of central Luzon, the largest island in the Philippine archipelago, at their own expense so they can apply for prosthetics or cataract surgery. Services are free of charge to eligible candidates. Thank you to the Kapampangan Development Foundation, local rotary clubs, and private donors donors like yourselves for making this possible.
