Why Your Donation Matters
Operation Walk’s medical team of 50+ people all donate their time on annual one-week mission trips.
Operation Walk pays for a portion of the travel, lodging and food for team members. Physicians cover their own travel expenses and implants are donated by our industry partners, Smith & Nephew Inc. and DePuy Synthes.
Surgical instruments, medicines, dressings, gowns, patient hospitalization expenses and the shipping of cargo are significant expenses and this is what we are fundraising for.
Your gift enables Operation Walk’s healthcare team to return patients with disabling joint disease to a more normal lifestyle. The gift of a new hip or knee joint from the Operation Walk team can make a significant difference to those who cannot walk, climb stairs, work or tie their shoelaces without pain. As part of Operation Walk’s work, they also teach and train local physicians and nurses, leaving a legacy of care.
The Concordia Foundation is a supportive partner with us and handles donation processing and receipting as a registered charity in Canada.
