A Leg To Stand On would like to all the following Foundation's for their generosity and support to enable ALTSO to treat more children with limb disabilities in the developing world. We are appreciative of all of the amazing work that these incredible Foundation's do throughout the world, and especially for their critical involvement with ALTSO.
Arthur B. Schultz Foundation
June 2013 - Present
In June of 2013 The Arthur B. Schultz Foundation ("ABSF") awarded A Leg To Stand On a grant of $15,000 to provide prosthetic & orthotic devices, mobility aids, clubfoot correction, corrective surgery and physiotherapy to 68 children in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Due to the success of their life-changing support, ABSF allocated an additional $17,000 grant to treat 65 more children through May 2015.
It is an honor for ALTSO to have been selected and we are committed to showing ABSF and the public the impact that they are making on the lives of children with limb disabilities in Cambodia. Below are up-to-date results of dollars spent, number of children treated and number of services provided.
