    Limbs Logo How many steps do you take in a day? Most people don’t even have to think about it--it’s just a part of life. But for millions of people, even taking a single step is impossible. 5th graders at Dove Elementary are becoming global citizens by partnering with LIMBS International to take action and improve the quality of life for amputees. When someone in a developing country becomes an amputee – they quickly come to realize they have lost much more than a limb. The loss of a limb is just the first loss in a cycle of loss that often includes their job, social standing, self-worth, family, dignity, and finally their humanity. LIMBS International works to bridge the gap between advanced technology and affordability. They make high-quality leg systems available to those who need them most. LIMBS makes prosthetics for amputees for less than the cost of a smart phone.   

     

    When a person loses a leg, they aren't able to work. As a result, they aren't able to financially support their family. Luis Columba, age 36 was an amputee. His leg was hit by a piece of metal that pierced his skin, causing his leg to become seriously infected. The only possible solution was to amputate his leg. LIMBS International gave Luis a prosthetic limb. Although the leg wasn't real, he was excited that he was able to walk and work again.

     

    Dove Elementary 5th graders have set a fundraising goal of $1,200. At this amount, four amputees, like Luis, will be given a prosthetic limb and a new hope for their future. Please take a few moments to learn more about the Dove Elementary LIMBS Fundraising Campaign by clicking on the LIMBS International Logo above, and make a donation today! The fundraising campaign ends on February 13.
