CoolKid Portraits

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




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.
