Hi there folks! This campaign is to help raise my ‘traveling residencies‘ to new heights - INTERNATIONAL! I will be traveling to Guatemala to provide orthoses and prostheses to underserved populations. The funds raised here will help pay for the 10 day trip ($1500) and the airfare (~$500). Any funds raised over the $2000 amount will go to buy componentry for the people we serve. Thank you! Here is the skinny about ROMP from the mouth of ROMP:
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.
We invite you to enroll in a 2018 volunteer program today!
