Prosthetic Clinics in the Developing World

 

IMG_2713

        Diabetes, infection, motor-bike accidents, land mines, and birth  defects (due to poor nutrition and water) are some of the leading causes of amputations in the developing world. Most amputees in these parts of the world live in extreme poverty, often on less than a few dollars a day, making it simply unattainable to receive prosthetic care.     IMG_2834

At EastPoint, part of our core values are to glorify God as He uses our gifts and abilities to transform lives. One of the ways we do this is by addressing these prosthetic needs in the developing world. In February and March, some of our clinicians and prosthetic residents will head to Guatemala and to El Salvador. While there, we will work with local partners in those areas to facilitate free prosthetic clinics. It is such a blessing to not only meet the physical need of providing prosthetic devices and care, but also to build relationships with the patients there as we share the love of Christ in both word and in deed.

MJ helping outPlease keep our teams in your prayers throughout February and March as they prepare for these clinics and travel to these countries. We look forward to sharing stories about their experiences and about the wonderful people they are able to care for.  IMG_8832
