My name is Christie Daire and I have been studying orthotics and prosthetics at Century College for the past two years. I am finishing up my last semester of the clinical assistant program and they are getting ready to unleash me on the world; in this case, literally. I am so excited for this opportunity to join ROMP and fellow classmates in Quito, Ecuador to help people take steps to overcome, what can be, a huge challenge to their daily lives. It is also helping me teach my family the difference you can have in this world. Thank you for visiting my page and any donations are sincerely appreciated. Please read below for more details about this amazing program/opportunity.
ROMP is an international non-profit organization working to address the gap in access to prosthetic care for people with amputation in the Western Hemisphere. We provide high-quality prosthetic and orthotic care through our permanent clinical operations in Guatemala, Ecuador, and the United States. Working alongside our local staff, ROMP volunteers of all professional and educational backgrounds play a key role in accomplishing this mission year-round.
I will be with O&P practitioners, physical therapists, occupational therapists, physiatrists, and students of those professions as everyone works hand-in-hand with the local staff to provide integrated care to ROMP patients and exchange knowledge and techniques.
My goal is to raise $1500 by August, which will cover my program fee with ROMP. Any amount raised past this point will go first toward my travelling expenses and then to ROMP and the services they provide around the world. Donations of any amount are welcome and appreciated little bit counts.
