Our Mission…

Hope to Walk brings hope and a future to amputee patients in developing nations by designing low-cost prosthetics and training local providers to manufacture and deliver them.

“Over 2 billion people in the developing world live on less than $3.10 a day. The World Health Organization estimates that there are roughly 35 million people who need prosthetic or assistive devices. Unfortunately, many of these people are not able to afford traditional prosthetic legs. Hope to Walk has designed below-knee and above-knee prosthetic legs that cost less than $100 and $200. To meet this incredible need we partner with missionary clinics across the globe and equip locals to manufacture and fit our prosthetics, allowing us to “Give the Gift of Walking” to as many people as possible. When you join our efforts, you give the world’s poor the opportunity to walk, support their families, and lead productive lives.”

People From Around The World Need Help To Walk Again. Will You Help?


Hope To Walk receives emails on a weekly basis from doctors and amputees who need prosthetics but either have no access to components or cannot afford them.  Each leg represents a group who has reached out to us for help.  How can you help us help them??

I am DR Oten a surgeon, working in Vanuatu, Pacific.

I have a lot of amputees here who lost their limb secondly to diabetic foot complications. Our min challenge is getting them a prosthesis so they can be economically empowered and provide living for their family. we have no means or producing tailored prosthesis here as we have limited finances and hope to apply for donations.  I am grateful for your input and assistance.

Thank You

Dr Oten , Vanuatu, Pacific

I have been an amputee for 26 years and I understand the struggles when your prosthesis falls apart and help is far away.  It would be a relief to many if HOPE TO WALK can come to our aid in Northern Nigeria, where there are many amputees not enough prosthetists or centers.  I have the wherewithal to provide a suitable location, I can also organise fund raisers which could raise some funds as I work with a bank and can reach out to a lot of people who would like to encourage me. They only need to know there is a structure in place.
The question is: Can you come to Nigeria?

At least for now I don’t need crutches a lot. And I am so grateful for this. I might look greedy for seeking another one while people out there can’t even get one. But please don’t get me wrong. I am just a man, a husband, a father-to-be who try to be better.  I am so touched to found out that there are people doing the same like you do. We, the amputees, need you. The world need you. No matter how much the cost of prosthetic you provide, you give people like a second chance to walk again. That’s absolutely something, a great thing.  Thank you that you would keep my email till you get a chance to come to Indonesia. I hope that I will already have a decent leg on that day so I can show it to you. Otherwise, you will be the man who give me one.

Keep doing the deeds and may God bless you and people in Hope to Walk.

A Few Stories:

Omar400x200

Omar’s Story

Our new friend Omar came to the clinic hoping to get help with obtaining a prosthetic leg.  He is a diabetic patient and lost his leg in 2013 as a result of a wound on his left foot.  Sadly, this is an all too common scenario when a patient receives their amputation to save their life (which is fantastic) but are left with little hope of ever walking again.  Many times these patients cannot afford a wheelchair as well.  READ MORE…

Roberth’s Story

Roberth has one of the most interesting stories we have seen so far.  In 2006 he was 9 years old and was playing outside when he was hit by a car.  He pulled through the accident but lost his leg as a result of the trauma.  He was fortunate however in that he was able to obtain a prosthetic leg at that time.  He used it for a little while, but as is the case with children – he quickly outgrew the leg.  His family was unable to afford a new leg, so he was forced to use crutches for years.  READ MORE…

Betsabe600x400

Betsabe’s Story

Betsabe has such a warm spirit.  She was 54 when she lost her right leg in 2014 as a result of a foot infection secondary to her diabetes.  As often is the case, she was unaware of the consequences of what a small wound on her foot could turn into, until she had to go to the hospital to have it amputated.  She was left with little to no hope of being able to afford a $2,000-3,000 leg, which is the normal price of a prosthetic leg in Honduras.  READ MORE…

Hope to Walk Patient

Anuar’s Story

In March of 2011, Anuar was 16 years old and was walking along the side of the road and was struck by a bus.  Thankfully he survived but lost his leg as a result of the accident.  You could imagine how difficult this trauma would be for an otherwise healthy young man who had his whole life ahead of him.  READ MORE…
