Run for Julia!
Julia Sales is from the highlands of Guatemala. Five years ago, Julia decided to try and give her kids a better life by immigrating to the United States. Tragically, Julia fell off the “Bestia” Train in Mexico, immediately losing her leg. We met Julia eighteen months ago and were able to fit her for a prosthetic leg. She adapted very quickly to her new prosthetic, and walked out of the clinic without any assistance or crutches!
Taxi was a man who ran with the wrong crowd. After losing his leg to complications from diabetes, a friend told him about Hope To Walk. The same day he received his prosthetic, Taxi was invited to church by a friend. This invitation led him to want to become a minister. Additionally, Taxi is training to be on our prosthetics team in Honduras. Taxi says Hope To Walk’s kindness opened the door to all the opportunities he has had.
Walk for David!
David is a 14-year-old boy living in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. When he was 12-years-old, he was crossing the street when a bus ran over his foot. That led to amputation - above his knee. He didn't walk for 2 years, just relying on crutches. In November 2019 Hope To Walk fit him with a prototype above-knee prosthetic leg, and he was able to walk again! David looks forward to being able to run, play soccer, and bike again!
- There are 35 million amputees and disabled people worldwide who need prosthetic devices but do not have access to them
- Traditional prosthetic legs cost between $10,000-$25,000 -- an unattainable price for someone making $3 per day
- Without the ability to walk, many amputees are outcast from society, depressed, unable to support themselves or their families
- Hope To Walk's prosthetic leg is measured and fit to the patient the same day; meaning less travel time and cost to patient
- Hope To Walk's prosthetic leg is lightweight and easy to use. The foot is designed to imitate natural movement.
- We train people in country so that they can help others in their own country
- Our certified training program helps fill the shortage of technicians worldwide
