SEPTEMBER CHANGE FOR CHANGE
HOPE TO WALK
Change for Change for the month of September will be supporting Hope to Walk. Founded by Dr. Philip Johnson, a Blacksburg doctor specializing in prosthetics and orthotics, Hope to Walk brings hope and a future to amputee patients in developing nations by designing low-cost posthetics and training local providers to manufacture and deliver them.
According to the World Health Organization, there are roughly 35 million people who need prosthetic or assistive devises. Unfortunately, many of the people are not able to afford traditional prosthetic legs, or even have access to providers. Dr. Johnson and Hope to Walk have designed below-knee and above-knee prosthetic legs that cost less than $100 and $200, and can be manufactured in developing regions. In order to meet this incredible need through sustainable methods, HTW partners with missionary clinics across the globe and equips locals to manufacture and fit our prosthetics. Those fitted with prostheics can become a much more productive member of their community.
Currently, HTW has scheduled two trips to Honduras during the last part of 2016. Funds raised by Change for Change in September will go towards supporting that effort.
