3What can I do to help?

We follow the Ponsetti method to treat babies and children with clubfoot. This is a months long process that requires weekly re-casting before they are fitted with their shoes from our partner, Iowa Brace. Your donation could provide:

  • Clubfoot casting kits with plaster and fiberglass rolls
  • A custom designed prosthetic leg replacement
  • Many patients have never walked. A $100 dollar donation can provide a life changing prosthetic for a below the knee amputee.
