Life and Limbs ( Prosthetic Limbs

Donation protected
Life and Limb, established in 2013 by Sam Johnson, is dedicated to serving the needs of amputees by providing the highest quality prosthetic limbs to the people of India. To date, Life and Limb has donated 164 limbs at an average cost of $2,000.00 per limb.

There are hundreds of amputees, young and old, who have lost their limbs due to diseases or accidents and are unable to perform the most basic tasks. They are severely limited in their abilities. Some of them have to be fed, bathed, clothed and carried from place to place. They are unable to work and provide for their families. Medical care and health insurance are nearly non-existent in rural parts of India, including Kerala, and amputees in impoverished families are not only ostracized but face insurmountable emotional and financial challenges. Sam Johnson - who was born in India's southern state - partnered with Ottobock, a leading manufacturer in the industry for prosthetics.

The original goal was to support 10 people every year Sam and his family. However, the demand has been raised every year. 2018 was the first year that Life and Limb started accepting public donations. In 2024, we will give 115 more limbs to 100 people at an estimated cost of $2,000.00 each.

Our mission's goal is to enable the physically and financially challenged amputees and bring them a step closer to leading normal lives. Would you lend a helping hand to make someone whole?
