Let's move the world.

Amparo Clinics is a social enterprise initiated by Amparo to empower amputees in developing countries. We provide prostheses via our mobile clinics to the millions of people living all over the world who don't have access to modern prosthetics. 

Why? The availability of accessible and affordable prosthetic legs is imperative for amputees to remain as independent as possible; allowing them to continue their education, be economically productive, and carry out meaningful activities. Join us and help support amputees to live to their maximum potential.
