In many areas of the world, people don’t have access to the same care that we have in the United States. Having a life-changing operation in these places is simply not an option. Many countries have poor healthcare, and even in countries that provide healthcare to their citizens, physicians don’t have access to training to provide specialty care like joint replacements. Implants are often not available, medical providers don’t have training and therefore these people are left to live a life of pain and disability.
It will cost a lot of money to get our team of 40+ there with the right equipment and supplies. Here is how your generous funds may be used for our mission. Any donation small or large is appreciated and we thank you in advance for your contribution to help the people of Cuba.
This private, not-for-profit organization will provide free surgical treatment to patients. We couldn't be more ready to get started on our endeavor to head to Cuba in 2017 and help patients who have no access to life-improving care for arthritis or other debilitating bone and joint conditions.
The Operation Walk Carolinas team can consist of 40+ volunteers including surgeons, physicians, anesthesiologists, physical therapists, medical technicians, and nurses. All are united in their passion for helping people who are in desperate need of orthopedic care.
OpWalk is making a splash! Please join us Sunday, September 10 2:00-5:00 p.m. from for our biggest fundraiser of the year, Operation Walk...on the Water. Get ready to cruise Lake Norman on a luxury yacht provided by Charters for Charity with plenty of music, food, drinks and a silent auction. We'll share what we did and learned on our first trip to Cuba, and you'll get a sneak peek at what we're up to as we get ready for our 2018 mission. Sponsorships are available. Tickets $125 or $200/2; all ticket purchases are tax deductible.
