The average ALTSO family earns about $3 a day, and lives approximately 1 to 3 miles away from the closest school. With no access to transportation, if a child can’t walk, they simply can't go to school. If they can’t go to school, they can’t get a job. If they can’t get a job, they can’t sustain a family. This is the reality for children with untreated limb disabilities in the developing world.
Your support will help fund orthopedic care for a child in need whose family cannot afford treatment. All donations are 100% tax-deductible.
Join us with a monthly donation to help keep our children moving.
Committing to monthly donations provides us with forward planning for the development of future programs.
