WALK FOR CARLITO:
Carlito is a 4-year-old boy in Guatemala. When he was just an infant, he was in a bus accident which led to the amputation of his leg. Hope To Walk was able to make a prototype above-knee prosthetic leg for Carlito in March; and he is now running, dancing and biking with the other children! Hope To Walk was able to make him a leg in his favorite superhero colors, Spiderman colors!
RUN FOR DOMINGA:
Dominga is a 26-year-old single mother of two adorable daughters living in the highlands of Guatemala. Dominga was in a truck accident at the tender age of 17 which led to the amputation of her leg. Her husband left her for another woman in the village, and does not financially support her. She relies on the grace of her church where she sings in the choir to support them, as she cannot work.
BIKE FOR HERNAN:
Hernan is a 71-year-old grandfather from Belize. He lost his leg due to diabetes several years ago. Hope To Walk was able to make a prosthetic leg for Hernan in April 2022, and he walked immediately. The next day we received a video of Hernan on his exercise bicycle!
- 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.
