Machines and Component donations

Late last year the Bolivian clinic received a very generous donation of machines, donated from Italy and shipped all the way to Bolivia.



To achieve this goal Matt corresponded for three years with Elena Bonacini, the president of YouAble, a very generous charity in Italy. Working together tirelessly, Matt and Elena comprised a list of vital machines (valued at thousands of dollars). Fortuitously, the new clinic location is much larger, and now these machines will be put to good use.

Elena and YouAble’s support did not stop there.  They also donated thousands of dollars directly to BWD to purchase prosthetic components in the USA at a great discount. We shipped the components to Bolivia using volunteers’ suitcases, and now even more patients can happily walk again.
