We're a non-profit organization providing free orthopedic care to children with limb disabilities in the developing world. Join Us!



What. Why. How. Where.

A Leg To Stand On ("ALTSO") provides free prosthetic limbs, orthotic devices, mobility aids, corrective surgery and rehabilitative care to children in the developing world who have lost limbs in traumatic accidents or suffer from congenital limb disabilities. All patients are children under the age of 18 whose families cannot afford the care they need to live a self-sufficient life.


Connect with us to have a personalized campaign created for you - customized with your own unique fundraising style. Your #CampaignForKids will directly help fund orthopedic care for children in need whose families cannot afford treatment.
