May 2017 Operation Walk Carolinas will travel to Cuba to perform critical hip and knee joint replacements for people who otherwise could not afford them. Having a life-changing operation for some people in that country is simply not an option because they don’t have access to such treatments. Implants are not available and there are no trained surgeons or health care providers to take care of them. 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.
