Arise and Walk

A very special program

"Arise, take up your bed, and go home." Matthew 9:6

As part of our mission to serve the needs of those medically deprived individuals in developing countries, we instituted a specialized prosthetic outreach program, Arise and Walk.

In our first outreach effort for this remarkable program, a team led by prosthetist Gerald Martin traveled on a mission to Honduras - where more than 20 patients who were previously unable to walk on their own power were the recipients of new artificial limbs.

Some of these patients were born with malformations; some were accident victims, however each one's need was assessed and our team fitted them with the devices that would best suit their abilities. Imagine receiving the gift of mobility after years of struggling with a disability!
