Wednesday, October 20, 2010
CLARK FREPORT - The Kapampangan Development Foundation (KDF) on Wednesday distributed new sets of artificial legs (prosthesis) to 11 indigents from different parts of the province.
They also obtained the measurements of 18 other potential beneficiaries of KDF's "Walking Free Pampanga" program.
KDF President Benigno Ricafort told Sun.Star Pampanga that KDF has already served close to 500 amputees from the province since the start of its program.
"This is one of our continuing advocacies and we hope to cater to more amputees as weeks progress. Prosthesis is currently assembled here at our laboratory at the Clark Polytechnic through the generous help of our supporters and partner organizations," Ricafort said.
KDF was founded in 1987 by Rizalino Navarro, the late Br. Andrew Gonzalez FSC, Cesar Villanueva, and Jose Araullo and Ricafort.
The project is made possible through the help of the Rotary Clubs in Pampanga and the United States and Philippine chapters of Physicians for Peace. (Ian Ocampo Flora)
