Preparing for Mission 2024!
You Can Make a Difference
Welcome to the Canadian Association of Medical Teams Abroad
Around the world, one in every 1000 babies is born with a club foot. In Ecuador, the majority of these children are not treated at birth, making learning to walk difficult or impossible.
Ecuador also has a particularly high incidence of hip dysplasia, a birth defect which can cripple a person by the age of thirty.
Poverty and limited access to medical assistance often means that children born with these conditions live with pain and limited mobility their entire lives.
It doesn’t have to be that way. CAMTA is making a difference – and you can help.
