An untreated limb disability can threaten the self-sustainability of a child and their entire family. But a prosthetic limb, provided free of charge to ALTSO’s patients, can change this. Mobility is more than movement, especially for children from the lowest economic backgrounds. Mobility means access to education, increased self-esteem and improvement in their families' socio-economic status. Mobility is opportunity, empowerment and hope.
ALTSO is dedicated to providing high-quality, continuous care until the age of 18 for all patients. We first treated Bhupendra, who was born missing his right leg, in 2006. Because his parents could not afford his treatment, at the age of eight Bhupendra had never attended school. Under ALTSO's program, Bhupendra received more than a dozen free prosthetic limbs to accommodate his growing body. Now 18 years old, Bhupendra is studying to become a professor of chemistry at a leading university in his home state of Gujarat.
