Limbs for Life has been actively involved in the Dominican Republic since 2007. Through our relationship with ADR, Limbs for Life helped establish a prosthetic clinic in the Dominican to help amputees receive the care they need at no cost to them. So far, Limbs for Life has provided the components necessary for helping over 300 amputees receive prosthetic limbs.
Many of these limbs were made possible due to the donation of used limbs by people in the United States. We would like to thank everyone that has helped the foundation provide a new lease on life for amputees in the Dominican.
