CLINICS

Through partnerships with prosthetic clinics across the country, Limbs for Life provided payments of $407,000 in 2013 to help clients get back on their feet. Collaborating clinics in 29 states have agreed to provide prosthetics, fittings and adjustments and additional services for a fixed contract price to clients who have been approved for services from our foundation. Clinics donate their time and talents to help the amputees. Limbs for Life Foundation helps with componentry as it is available and provides a financial bridge between low-income amputees and the quality prosthetic care needed. With appropriate care and assistance, amputees have the opportunity for a productive and independent lifestyle.

Limbs for Life will pay $2,500 for a below-knee prosthetic and $3,500 for an above-knee device. The specific terms and agreement are included in the Client Application. The clinic portion must be completed by the partner clinic and submitted with the client application.

INTERNATIONAL

An important part of our program at Limbs for Life is to provide used prosthetic components to developing countries. Each week Limbs for Life receives shipments of used limbs that are no longer needed by the original client. The limbs are dismantled and broken down into component parts and made available for worldwide humanitarian efforts led by foundations, groups and individuals. While laws regulate reuse of certain components in the United States, many items may be utilized in foreign countries. Our partnerships with prosthetic clinics and several non-profit agencies around the globe allow Limbs for Life, based in Oklahoma-City, to impact the lives of amputees on four continents.

Partnerships exist and have served clients in the following countries:

Panama
Philippines
Nigeria
Zimbabwe
Haiti
Guatemala
Mongolia
Dominican Republic

Hi,
I am Tadiwanashe Mavura. How are you? I am super fine. I want to thank you so much for everything you have done for me in order to walk again. I am so grateful for the pieces you sent me.  I can’t wait for the day I am going to use my new leg.  Thank you again for the books and dolls. The only problem is my young sister who is taking the dolls from me.  She runs away with them because she knows I can’t catch up with her.  Again thank you so much.  I wish I could see you and your friends in person one day in America. Hope you saw my photos my mum sent you.
Pass my greetings and appreciation to all who contributed towards this special gift. 
Loving friend,

Tadiwanashe
