Vania, a five-year-old girl, is my friend who was born with Amelia syndrome, meaning she was born without her feet and her two hands. She is currently going through some therapy and was given prosthesis to were on her feet which allow her to walk with no problem. However, due to her parents low income, she cannot get prosthesis for her two hands and is not able to perform activities she could do if she had the prosthesis on her hands. She keeps asking her mom when her hands are going to grow.
I am studying Computer Engineer and I have some knowledge on electronics. My friend Rosselis is an Industrial Design student who has the ability to design Vania's hands prosthesis. We both have the desire to help Vania become self-sufficient, but unfortunately we do not have the necessary tools and equipment to make hand prosthesis for her.
We would appreciate any help you could offer to help Vania's dream come true: have her two hands. We understand there are more children with Vania's same problem who do not have the means to get prosthesis. We will utilize the funds we get with GoGetFunding, we can make prosthesis not only for Vania but also for those kids who need it.
