EETEP have teamed up with both the Survivor Corps in Bosnia and with Otto Bock, a worldwide company specialising in made to measure prosthetics for people who have lost their limbs. Fortunately, Otto Bock have a branch in Sarajevo delivering professional treatment to their patients-and by maintaining this friendly working relationship we are able to achieve so much more with the little funding we have.
Survivor Corps (together with Melisa Banda of Otto Bock) select the patients most in need from around Bosnia. Melisa then emails a brief story and details of the patient to EETEP along with a price for the work and-as we are all working towards the same goal this price is greatly reduced.
When the money is raised, EETEP transfers the funds directly into Otto Bock's account and sends on a confirmatory email-Otto Bock then goes to work. When each patient has had the work carried out Melisa photographs the finished job and sends us the pictures. You can help by donating funds of any amount towards the treatment of our current landmine victims. Be sure to attach a note with the name of your chosen patient to your donation. If you do not wish your name to appear on the donators list please advise us. Thank you.
