Project Hope Mission of Mercy
Project Hope – Belize (PHB) is a charitable organization, in partnership with the World Pediatric Project (WPP) in Richmond, VA., that provides prosthetic and orthotic treatment for those who have weakened or deformed regions of the body or may have lost a limb. This past March 2014, Mike Malagari, CO, FAAOP, President and Craig Violette, CTO, COA, volunteered their services as part of the pediatric orthotic team. Mike and Craig spent 10 days in Orange Walk Town, Belize treating 50 patients. They spent their time evaluating, casting, custom fabricating and fitting various orthotic braces to these patients.
Orthotic Solutions helped establish the orthotic manufacturing and pediatric care taking place in Belize and since 2010 has been visiting the patients in need in Belize on a bi-yearly basis. Orthotic Solutions is proud to have been a part of this latest charitable mission in a part of our hemisphere that is badly in need of modern, medical help.
