BENEFITING: Range Of Motion Project NFP
EVENT DATE: Oct 13, 2017
DAYS TO GO: 20
Hi there! My name is Chelsea Welch and I am a student at Loma Linda University working for my Masters in Orthotics and Prosthetics. This September I will be joining four other O&P students on a mission trip to Guatemala. During this trip I will be providing high-quality prosthetic care alongside practioners and ROMP clinicians to deliver prosthetics to amputees living without medical insurance.
Loma Linda's mission is "To Make Man Whole" and it is my goal to fully embrace this motto. My contribution in this trip will not only make me a better and more well-rounded clinician, but also give back to those less fortunate. I am confident that this trip will change my life as well as those in need, and I hope that you can help me on this journey. Any dollar counts! Thank you so much for your support!
ROMP believes in the power of education to transform the unequal distribution of prosthetic care in the world. Every year, ROMP Ecuador hosts clinical trips with leading orthotic and prosthetic practitioners, faculty, and students to facilitate a knowledge exchange between these individuals and ROMP's local staff.
Under supervision, practitioners, students, and ROMP clinicians work side by side with real patients in our Guatemala clinic- exchanging ideas, sharing clinical techniques, and working to improve patient outcomes. Educating future clinicians to the realities of disability care in resource poor settings makes them better medical professionals and advocates. Exposing ROMP staff to the latest clinical techniques makes them better clinicians resources for our patients.
It is a win, win for all involved. Each dollar raised will help ROMP continue to deliver high-quality prosthetic care. By donating to your "someone", who is involved with ROMP, you are helping create mobility for thousands of amputees living without care globally.
