Dear friends and family,
Thank you for helping me with the volunteer program fee so I can help provide prosthetic care in Ecuador this summer! As a student in BCIT's clinical prosthetics and orthotics program, I'll be able to help individuals with amputations that would not otherwise have access to care. The $1,500 USD fee covers food, transportation and lodging during the volunteer program.
Any amount up to $1,500 will go directly to ROMP to cover the program fee. Anything over $1,500 will go towards the cost of my flight. I know everyone's financial situation is different, so please do not feel obligated to contribute. I am grateful and humbled by any support to help me pursue this exciting opportunity. Please be mindful that donations are in USD.
The program is organized by the Range of Motion Project (ROMP). ROMP provides high quality prosthetic care to underserved populations. http://www.rompglobal.org/
With love and gratitude,
This program gives volunteers the opportunity to work hand-in-hand with practitioners from ROMP and Fundación Hermano Miguel to provide world-class prosthetic care and physical and occupational therapy to Ecuadorians with amputation who otherwise do not have access to these services. Volunteers will serve through an intense clinical week at the world-class Fundación Hermano Miguel rehabilitation facility. They will play a key role in remobilizing Ecuadorian patients and exchanging knowledge and skills with local practitioners.
