10 more children living life with a smile
LiMITTless Smiles Project
Adam, the founder of Limbbo Foundation, is such an amazing person aiming to help families of children with limb difference the necessary tools and information to make children smile. He has created these resources from scratch and even developed some useful tools to make life easier.
So it was with great pleasure that we could provide Tommy with a sample Mitt to try out for size. The trial was such a success that Adam has committed Limbbo Foundation funds to supply 5 children with Mitt's for FREE. Mitt have matched his donation meaning a total of 10 children living with limb difference with a smile.
This is another big step towards the major goal of providing every child in the UK free access to Mitt prosthesis.
