Prosthetics Outreach Foundation (POF) is a non profit medical service organization that provides urgently needed high quality prostheses (artificial limbs) to amputees in developing countries and in the United States. Since 1988, the staff and volunteers have fitted over 10,000 children and adults with new prostheses, enabling each amputee to walk again with dignity. POF helps communities to meet the needs of their own amputees by establishing clinics to create and fit artificial limbs and workshops to manufacture prosthetic components with local materials.
