LN-4 Hands going to Venezuela...still. 馃檪
Also this paragraph is a wonderful description of the positive impact fitting LN-4 hands have.

Siempre habr谩 formas de mejorar la calidad de vida de las personas con una condici贸n f铆sica distinta, por ejemplo, 驴sab铆as que la rehabilitaci贸n favorece la independencia y contribuye a potenciar las capacidades y habilidades de las personas que les falta alg煤n miembro de su cuerpo?

Por eso es importante que reciban esa atenci贸n, y aun m谩s con la pr贸tesis; ya que los ayuda a adaptarse a ella y aprender a usarla con mayor facilidad y destreza.

Today we connected helping people with their finances to building a hand for an amputee in need during our #HelpingHands program with Prudential Retirement.

Can you think of any connections the two may have?

Here鈥檚 the story from Divyani (the ambassador)...

Yesterday i fixed LN4 hand to this person.. I don't know him.. I just saw him in bus.. & explained him about LN4 & fixed it.. He was happy to receive the hand but the strap was very small for his bulky hand.. So i told him to extend the straps

Continuing to make a difference.

We are on the way back to Nairobi from Mitunguu where we fitted 165 hands. It was an amazing collaboration between Rotary Clubs, Rotaractors and the Mitunguu Hospital. The joy that we have seen on the recipients faces has been rewarding. Thankyou to the Australian Team of Barry, Sara, Helen and Jan. To travel so far to give out so much of themselves is humbling. They have big hearts and we have had lots of laughs.

LN-4 hands projects in India and with Rotary Clubs are continuing to find ways to distribute more free Ln-4 hands to help those who benefit. Wonderful!

Rotary and The Ellen Meadows Prosthetic Foundation join hands to gift 12000 prosthetic hands in India

Imagine the plight of a 40 year old man lost both his hands in an accident at the age of 18. He could not work for the rest of his life and became a dependant on his mother, even to feed him. This man was recently provided a free below elbow functional prosthetic hand by a partnership between Rotary and Ellen Meadows Foundation. For the first time since the loss of his hands, he was able to eat on his own.

Most end up losing hope in their life after losing a limb. The Ellen Meadows Prosthetic Foundation, USA with its Give Hope Give a Hand program, has a vision of reaching out to the un-reached by providing free below elbow functional prosthetic hands. The LN-4 Hands are distributed around the world at no cost to recipients.

These hands are manufactured in the USA and assembled in countries that include USA, Australia, and Germany.

To receive free LN-4 Prosthetic hand, the person must above 5 years old, with minimum 13 centimeters from the tip of the elbow to end of the residual limb. There should be no open wounds and unusual sensitivity on the residual. Good flexibility and muscle tone should be in the upper arm, joint and residual limb. Double amputees, only one LN鈥4 hand per candidate.

These prosthetic devices are non-surgical and will be fitted with the supervision of our trained volunteers, to qualified, below elbow hand amputees.

Over 45,000 beneficiaries spread over 92 countries have been happy recipients of this prosthetic hand. In India since its inception, over 12,000 people have benefited.

Rtn K V Mohan Kumar of Rotary Bangalore Prime who is the LN-4 Ambassador for South Asia, says, what has been achieved so far is just the tip of the ice berg.

A ripple effect in reaching out to those in need of this prosthetic hands through a collaborative efforts of Rotary Clubs and NGOs across India, has resulted in camps being conducted frequently across India.

Reasons for loss of hand include electrocution, industrial accidents, road/train accidents, working with farm equipment machinery to name a few.

Past Rotary International President Rtn Kalyan Banerjee had this to say on the LN-4 Prosthetic Hands. 鈥淗ands to the armless, is more than a project, much more than giving relief and hope. It is like giving a new life altogether. Those without hands have no hands but yours鈥.
