Amputees are in need around the world. Find out why they need our help >
The need for affordable prosthetic legs in developing countries is great. The recent earthquake in Haiti has led to over 4,000 new amputees, according to this article on PBS. The situation is even more critical in Cambodia, where 1 out of every 236 Cambodians is an amputee. High-tech prosthetic devices are available, but they are very expensive and therefore unaffordable for many people who need them.

The prosthetic leg that our team has designed is a simple design made of PVC. The total material cost for the device is under $25. All materials for this component are available locally. The skills required to manufacture and fit this PVC leg component are simple and are being taught to local citizens.
