Why Your Donation Matters
The generosity of donors makes Operation Walk's work possible.
Operation Walk’s medical team of 50+ people all donate their time on these one week mission trips. Operation Walk pays for a portion of the travel, lodging and food for team members. Physicians cover their own travel expenses. The implants are donated by Smith & Nephew Inc. and DePuy Synthes however surgical instruments, medicines, dressings, gowns, patient hospitalization expenses and the shipping of cargo are significant expenses. Your gift will enable Operation Walk’s trained team to return patients with disabling joint disease to a more normal lifestyle.
The gift of a new hip or knee joint from the Operation Walk team can make a significant difference to those who cannot walk, climb stairs, work or tie their shoelaces without pain.
As part of Operation Walk’s work, they also teach and train local physicians and nurses, leaving a legacy of care.
100% of your donations go toward these expenses which are directly associated with the work of each mission. Charitable Receipts are issued online and in hard copy.
