Operation Walk 2019
Message from Medical Director: Thank you for your ongoing support of Operation Walk Manitoba. It has been a challenging year for us and I wanted to ensure that you are kept up to date. As most of you may have heard we unfortunately had to cancel the 2018 mission to Nicaragua due to the civil unrest in that country. This resulted in a travel advisory being issued by the Canadian Government and as the safety of the team members is the board’s primary responsibility the mission was cancelled, as were all other medical missions from Canada and the United States. We were delighted to hear that just recently the travel advisory was downgraded and other teams have resumed their missions to Nicaragua. It is therefore our intent to return to Nicaragua in November 2019 to continue our work in providing hip and knee replacements.

Make a difference today!
Every donation makes a difference. Your gift enables Operation Walk’s team of healthcare professionals to return people with disabling joint disease to a more normal lifestyle. Patients are often confined to a wheelchair, crutches or dependent on someone else just to walk a short distance. The gift of a new hip or knee joint from the Operation Walk team can make a significant difference. Your donation will continue to help us achieve our mission.
