In June of this year I will be joining some of my classmates and other medical professionals to volunteer with Range of Motion Project (ROMP) in Guatemala. While I am working with ROMP I will be providing prosthetic and orthotic care to those who are able to make it into the clinic. More information on the Range of Motion Project is below as well as a video and website. The cost of attendance is $1500 which covers my housing, local transportation, materials, and some meals. Any money raised over that amount will be donated directly to the organization. Please consider helping me get to Guatemala by donating to this crowdrise.
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.
Enrollment is open to rehabilitation professionals including P&O 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. In addition to these professionals, we welcome photographers, yoga therapists, motivational speakers, engineers, craftspeople, and interested individuals of all other professions to be crucial members of each program.
