Autumn 2023 La Paz Clinic

This autumn’s clinic lasted 7 days and during that time there was a total of 53 patient visits. 17 artificial limbs were delivered and consisted of 8 above knee prostheses, 9 below knee prostheses (2 patients were bilateral or both legs amputated). Also 5 AFO’s (aka below the knee braces) were delivered along with many patients who came in for repairs - new feet, liners, sleeves, shrinkers, socks, etc.

We already have a waiting list of 28 patients for our next clinic which is to be held in the spring of 2024. We are hoping to coincide the next clinic with the Solar Eclipse on April 8, 2024 and close the clinic down for one morning so all of the volunteers can drive down to lands end and observe the 95.1% eclipse, then return to La Paz and see patients that afternoon.

Donations for the clinic are always greatly appreciated. You can send your tax deductible donation to:
Limb Restoration Project a Nonprofit Corporation
c/o Doug Pinkley, CPO
411 12th Avenue
Seattle, WA 98122-0000

Thank you for any donations and thanks for allowing us the opportunity to inform all of you Nomads about our clinic (established 2004!)

Thanks so much for being the light for so many in Baja!

Come visit La Bocana

And always remember, life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by those moments that take our breath away.
