Uplifting The Spirit Through Support and Information
As many of you know part of what we do as a support group is to try to help provide prosthetic components when someone is unable to get a leg through insurance or by other means.
We have had several individuals that have needed that help lately and therefore we have used a good deal of the components we have had donated.
If you have, or know of someone who may have, prosthetics that are not being used please contact us if you would like to donate them. It is a great blessing to be able to reach out and help others.
The Barr Foundation is a non-profit organization established in 1992 to assist amputees with prosthetic rehabilitation. We provide assistance to amputees domestically and internationally who would otherwise have no other financial resources.
Our mission is to advance education and improve community support for amputees of the world. The Barr Foundation strives to improve the amputee's quality of life through access to proper prosthetic care and by encouraging improvements in the care system.
The Barr Foundation carries out this mission through its efforts to help amputees of the world live healthy and productive lives with dignity.
We would like to thank all those who helped in Rolando's cause and ask that you continue to check back and keep your hearts open for others in need.
I must take a moment here to hopefully explain what the experience of working with others through the support group has meant to myself and the entire support group. We do not hesitate when we find out about someone's need because when God calls we are to answer without hesitation. Following that calling and His lead is the guide that helped all this to come together. If you find yourself in a position to reach out, remember, our paths cross with others because our service is required and our ability is a given gift to use for His calling.
