A Fact Sheet From Our National Limb Loss Resource Center
While the Amputee Coalition’s National Limb Loss Resource Center serves United States residents, there are many organizations who can help people with limb loss or limb difference outside of the country.
The Coalition recently published an updated fact sheet titled “Global Resources for People With Limb Loss and Limb Difference.” You can find the full document online at blog.amputeecoalition.org or the National Limb Loss Resource Center (https://www.amputee-coalition.org/resources/global-resources-amputees-limb-lossdifference/).
