Our mission is to provide no-cost prosthetic limbs and orthotic devices to those who cannot afford, or do not have access to these services. We recently completed construction of a fully functional laboratory in Zacapa, Guatemala and have begun treating this very needy population. We are always looking for volunteers and donations of rehabilitation materials including used prosthetic and orthotic devices.
Additional Information & Comments
ROMP operates regardless of religious or political affiliation. ROMP recognizes the hardship of living in poverty without a prosthetic or orthotic device and understands how important these, often times simple devices, are to those who do not have access to them. In many cases, a prosthetic or orthotic device is a critical component in a disabled person's rehabilitation. With this "tool", independence, mobility and involvement in community and the socio-economic structure can become more attainable. Rehabilitation has the power to increase visibility of the disabled and awareness can change attitudes and help people see that "disability" is only as crippling as the barriers we let stand in our minds and in our world. Together, with the help of trained prosthetists and orthotists, care givers, volunteers and generous donors, ROMP's vision of offering independence and hope to countless individuals is becoming a reality.
