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."
