Mahavir Kmina Artificial Limb Center has been working since 2007 in the manufacture and provision of prostheses for people who have lost their legs and cannot afford a regular solution. We have had beneficiaries from all the Colombian territory, even though we only have one office at La Estrella, Antioquia. This fact makes our job even more special: we pay for the beneficiaries’ transportation, hotel accommodation and psychological support.

With this specific project our goal is to provide 40 children with prostheses. So far we have raised USD $12,830 that have been translated into 25 prostheses. We are missing little for the 26th prostheses which is why we want to thank our donors for making this achievement possible.

Almost every six months, a child needs the prostheses to be changed -this occurs because they grow and can´t wear the old prostheses. We encourage you to share the word about our project so a lot of children are able to walk again or to have new prostheses that fit.

You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter and our Youtube channel and be updated of our advances.

Thank you very much for your support!

It is a great satisfaction for us to be able to help people recover their mobility, especially when they are children. If you look down and think about all the things you can do with your legs and all the opportunities you have reached thanks to them, you can figure out how hard it is for a child to live without one.

Back in 2012 we set a goal: raising $20,000 USD that would help us match 50% of the value of 40 prostheses for children that need them in Colombia. With the support of our donors, though Globalgiving, we have been able to improve the lives of 25 children so far, raising $12,600 USD.

The 25 prosthetic limbs we have installed to children in Colombia thanks to your support mean that half of the children included in our goal have the capability to walk, play and run again. Furthermore, Mahavir Kmina has not only provided the 25 children with the prosthesis they need to walk but we have also given them medical and psychosocial consultations that support the children's adaptation and integral development.

We thank you again for your interest and support, and we hope can continue to count on your support to impact the lives of more children to walk again. We encourage you to share this information with your friends and family so they learn what Mahavir Kmina is doing to improve the life of children.

Kind regards,

Juan Rodrigo Mejia

Version en espanol

Es una gran satisfaccion para nosotros poder ayudar a las personas a recuperar su movilidad, especialmente cuando se trata de ninos. Si miras abajo y piensas en todas las cosas que puedes hacer con tus piernas y en todas las oportunidades que has podido alcanzar gracias a ellas, puedes imaginarte lo dificil que es para un nino vivir sin una de ellas.

Desde el 2012 nos pusimos una meta: movilizar USD$20,000 que nos sirvieran como 50% de contrapartida para cubrir el costo de 40 protesis de ninos que las necesitan en Colombia. Con el apoyo de nuestros donantes, a traves de Globalgiving, hemos podido mejorar las vidas de 25 ninos hasta ahora, movilizando USD $12,600.

Las 25 protesis de miembros inferiores que les hemos dado a los ninos en Colombia gracias a su apoyo, significan que la mitad de los ninos incluidos en nuestra meta tienen la capacidad de jugar, correr y caminar otra vez. Mas alla, Mahavir Kmina no solo ha proveido a 25 ninos con las protesis que necesitan para caminar, sino que tambien les ha dado el apoyo y las consultas medicas que necesitan para una adaptacion y desarrollo integrales.

Les agradezco una vez mas por su interes y apoyo y esperamos poder seguir contando con su ayuda para impactar las vidas de mas ninos para que caminen otra vez. Los invito a compartir esta informacion con sus amigos y familia para que conozcan lo que esta haciendo Mahavir Kmina por mejorar las vidas de los ninos.

Atentamente,

Juan Rodrigo Mejia

Furthermore, Mahavid Kmina has not only provided the 24 children with the prosthesis they need to walk but we have also given them medical and psychosocial consultations that support the children’s adaptation and integral development.

Primer reporte del proyecto 2013

¡El 2012 fue un gran año para nosotros gracias a sus donaciones! Hasta la fecha, Mahavir Kmina ha movilizado USD$ 12,235 gracias a ustedes y a Globalgiving. Además, con el apoyo de nuestra junta directiva, hemos podido dar una contrapartida del 50% a cada dólar movilizado en la plataforma, obteniendo un total de USD$ 24,470.

Con el dinero que hemos recaudado hasta ahora, hemos podido darles a 24 niños las prótesis que necesitan para poder volver a caminar. Llevamos más de la mitad de nuestra meta, todo esto, con tu apoyo.

Vale la pena resaltar que en Mahavir Kmina no solo hemos proveido a los niños con las prótesis sino que además les hemos dado las consultas médicas y psicosociales que necesitan para adaptarse y para tener un desarrollo integral.

Queremos agradecerles una vez más por su interés y apoyo, esperamos poder seguir contando con ustedes para mejorar la vida de muchísimos más niños para que puedan caminar otra vez.

Con gratitud
