Our 2018 Mission – 50 Replacements in 5 Days!
Operation Walk Idaho has set a goal, in concert with Operation Walk Utah, to support El Salvadorian people with two missions a year, one in the Spring and one in the Fall. We hope to complete 50 joint replacements in 5 days. Dr. Colin Poole, will be taking a team of medical personnel, including nurses and anesthesiologists.
In order to carry out a mission trip to El Salvador we need to raise money to help cover the costs of international travel, housing, food, and transportation for all of our volunteers. We also need to bring all of our supplies down with us. Everything that you can think of that you may need in order to do a joint replacement surgery needs to be shipped down. We are fortunate that we get all of the knee and hip implants donated.
All the recipients of the joint replacements would not otherwise be able to afford the surgeries and many are looking at years in a wheelchair or on crutches, unable to work or enjoy life. Your donations can help someone back on their feet! We appreciate any amount large or small – every bit helps.
