Our partner in Bolivia has finally found a new location for their prosthetic center  Moving from a tiny, cramped 1000-sq-foot house, which was barely adequate, they have moved into a place that’s twice as large.  The new location is a classic 80-year-old registered landmark house with wooden floors and 15-foot high ceilings. The new building has a spacious area for physical therapy activities, as well as additional dedicated rooms for fabrication. The new building also has a larger office so that volunteers will no longer be falling all over each other to get their work done. The new location offers cheaper rent and a MUCH better location in town – near one of the main squares. After a lot of painting, repairs and hard work, the move took place ten days ago. We are excited to start serving patients when the doors open on January 9, 2017!
