Prostheses for Jamaica

We are working on a project to supply prosthetists and prostheses for those suffering from diabetes in Jamaica who cannot afford such professional services. There is only one prosthetist in Jamaica so we are searching for both professionals and preowned prostheses that can be adapted to those in need. As of yet, the Grand Hospitaller has had limited success but with extensive experience in medicine in the Caribbean, we recognize the endemic nature of diabetes and hypertension throughout the Caribbean and continue to search for prosthetists and prostheses.
