Who we AreSonrie Ministries,

Prosthetic care for people in Central America &

the Caribbean

Fabricating and fitting quality, custom-fit artificial limbs is a challenge no matter where the work is done, but to give patients the quality care they need while working in developing

nations is especially challenging. Our volunteers arenít afraid to try new methods, work long hours, and use their creativity and energy to get the job done.

 

Our goal is ďC.A.F.S.Ē:

To fabricate limbs that are:

Comfortable and custom-fit to each patient

Appropriate for climate and topography of patientís home country

Functional for the patientís level of activity and lifestyle

Sustainable in the country by local technicians

From plaster test sockets to innovative harness designs, Sonrie volunteers make miracles happen!
