Life and Limb

$17,744 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 50 people in 5 months
The Life and Limb Organization, a nonprofit established in 2013 by Sam Johnson, is dedicated to serving the needs of amputees by providing highly technical prosthetic care in Kerala, India. There are hundreds of amputees, young and old, who have lost their limbs as a result of disease or accident 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 in India is nearly non-existent in rural parts of India, including in Kerala, and amputees in impoverished families not only are ostracized but also face insurmountable emotional and financial challenges. Moved by the needs and limitations of many amputees in Kerala, Sam Johnson -- who was born in India's southern state known as "God's own Country" -- formed The Life and Limb Organization, which has partnered with reputable companies to design top-rated and custom-made prosthetic devices for each amputee. 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 consider partnering with us to help someone get back on their feet? Would you lend a helping hand to make someone whole?

The money raised here will be taken to the state of Kerala in India on 01/13/18 for an event where 31 people will recieve 33 limbs, this is in conjunction with the support of Bethelehem Assemblies of God Church in Valley Stream, NY.
