Abroad: Prosthetics In Ecuador

Also in October, Pouches will be preparing to travel to Ibarra, Ecuador with the Rappahannock Rotary Club in November. The Rotary Club has been invited to visit the Ibarra Rotary Club’s Prosthetics for Life Foundation, a shop that focuses on providing prosthetics and orthotics to low-income community citizens. One of Pouches' best friends, Tabitha Van Doren, 21, uses orthotics to manage her neuromuscular disease. Tabitha and Pouches are collecting used orthotics to take to Ecuador to be refurbished for our Ecuadoran friends who need help walking. If you have old foot, leg, or knee braces you can donate, go to www.fredericksburgparent.net for further details on how to donate. The club also supports a program for children with learning disabilities and mental health issues, a retirement center for low income seniors and an orphanage for children with HIV/AIDS.
