Ukraine Prosthetic Assistance Project
We are happy to announce the launch of the new humanitarian project in Ukraine - "Ukraine Prosthetic Assistance Project".
The goal of the project is to improve the prosthetic industry in Ukraine by transferring knowledge and skills to Ukrainian specialists in advanced and complicated prosthetics, as well as follow up and rehabilitation. Between April 26 and May 8 a team of world-class specialists from the US will travel to Ukraine to train specialists from across the country. At the same time, 5 candidates with complex amputations will be fitted and more will be assessed for future fitting by the newly trained Ukrainian prosthetists.
The project is run by Euromaidan Canada (Ukrainian Canadian Congress Toronto) and Canada-Ukraine Foundation in partnership with "ProsthetiKa" (USA). The medical advisor to the project is Dr. George Luczkiw (Toronto).
Although Canada Ukraine Foundation and World Rehabilitation Fund have provided a significant financial support to this project, it cannot move forward without YOUR help. Please donate here online or by cheque indicating "Prosthetics". Canadian charitable tax receipts for donations over $50 will be provided.
