There are over 100 amputations happening a day in Haiti and more imminent as disease takes hold. Join us for drinks and a beautiful photo show to help ROMP raise money to provide funding, equipment and components to allow Healing Hands for Haiti to rebuild their facilities and provide care for amputees in need.

04/19/07 APC largest donation in history
American Prosthetic Components (APC) pledges largest donation in its history to ROMP field clinics. January 2007, Brad Curtis - VP of APC sent hundreds of brand new endoskeletal connector components to Albermarle O&P for use in the Prosthetics for Ecuador Mission. This donation of nearly $8000 allowed the Prosthetics for Ecuador team to fit 50 patients with new prosthetic limbs for the third consecutive year. Thank You APC! The mission would have failed without your help.
