The KDF started its prosthesis program in 2007 as part of their "Walking Free Pampanga" advocacy that aims to make the province's amputees mobile again.
The project is in coordination with the Physicians for Peace (PFP), which takes charge of the prosthesis construction. KDF has also included diabetes awareness campaign in their long line of social projects.
KDF President Benigno Ricafort told Sun.Star Pampanga that the new beneficiaries were identified through the help of KDF partners like the Rotary Clubs and Quota International Pampanga.
"We have been continuously providing artificial legs and we invite local government units and non-government groups to partner with us on this mission to make amputees mobile again," Ricafort said.
