Meeting a world of amputee needs

An important part of our program at Limbs for Life is providing used prosthetic components to developing countries. Each week Limbs for Life receives shipments of used limbs that are no longer needed by the original client. The limbs are dismantled and broken down into component parts and made available for worldwide humanitarian efforts led by foundations, groups and individuals. While laws regulate reuse of certain components in the United States, many items may be utilized in foreign countries. Our partnerships with prosthetic clinics and several non-profit agencies around the globe allow Limbs for Life, based in Oklahoma, to impact the lives of amputees on five continents.

Limbs for Life has distributed limbs and parts in the following countries:

  • Cameroon
  • India
  • Ukraine
  • Costa Rica
  • Brazil
  • Ghana
  • Iraq
  • Cuba
  • Ecuador
  • Nigeria
  • Mongolia
  • Dominican Republic
  • Trinidad
  • S. Africa
