Partnership With ISA/UVU

2ft Prosthetics recently partnered with ISA, an International Service Abroad Club at Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah in an effort to help more amputees. They recently returned from a trip to Guatemala where this particular group (13 to be exact), along with Doug Wright, a member of 2ft Prosthetics were able to fit 14 amputees and build 15 prosthetic legs all within less than a week's time (more stories to come on that later).

"The (ISA) International Service Abroad Club was founded in 2007. They understand that the need for service is worldwide so the ISA Club was created to help fill that need. Julie Baker Bagley, Director of the National Student Exchange program at Utah Valley University, has served as the sole advisor for the club since it's inception. But because this is a student focused club, students from all disciples across the University have had the opportunity to be a part of service missions to Thailand, Guatemala, and Tonga thus far.

As a club, they hope to be able to touch the lives of others through service while attending UVU. The ISA Club opens it's doors to the student who is willing to learn from others, and also who makes service a part of their daily lives. We want to engage with our community and beyond, we seriously believe that our project changes lives, and we want to be inclusive of everyone within UVU, our community, and worldwide."

We are pleased with the outcome of this partnership and recognize the power that comes from uniting and partnering with organizations such as these. If you or another organization would like to partner with 2ft Prosthetics, please contact:

Thank you members of ISA! Your hard work and unique personalized dedication has proved to truly "bring hope to amputees one leg at a time!

Without 2FtProsthetics, we could never have done this project. We love ya Doug! You were so patient anf helped us all in giving us knowledge and guidance to build legs. We also recognize the amazing help we received from Eddy Fuentes, Juilo Fuentes and Lucky Fuentes from Centro Bionico and Ortepedia Centrewoamericana in Guatemala City. They were instrumental in making this trip a success by donating their time and facilities. Thanks everyone!

Doug, we are truly pleased to partner with you and 2ft Prosthetics. It would virtually be impossible to have worked with anyone who was so patient and could handle all the pressure and demands of 13 devoted service oriented students, when constructing the prosthetic feet. We so loved working with you and desire to continue our partnership. Thank you for making such a difference to our friends of Guatemala. Friends forever, Julie and the ISA Team
