From Asia to Africa to Latin America, ALTSO kids are the coolest - not because we say so, but because they say so.

 

 

Stories

We work in areas where there is a staggering need for orthopedic care due to landmines, violence, and most simply – poverty. Our time in the developing world provides us with unique insight and further perspective of how children with limb disabilities benefit from free orthopedic treatment and rehabilitation.

Proving it through patient photos.

At ALTSO, we believe in proving the impact of your generosity. 100% of our program funds are used to provide free orthopedic care and training programs to benefit children with limb disabilities in the developing world. These children are why we do what we do.

Focusing on the issues at hand.

Patient Intake Forms (PIF's) are submitted on a monthly basis by each program partner for every child who is evaluated and treated. PIFs include patient history, diagnosis, treatment provided, cost of services, etc.
