Operation Walk International has had a very successful medical mission to the city of Medellin Colombia. We have found many in need of life changing medical care and were able to help them. In April of this year, two teams traveled to South America to a city in Colombia and performed total hip and knee replacement surgeries.  In just three days, Operation Walk International performed 32 total joint replacements.  We were only able to do this with the generous donations of or supporters.  Smith and Nephew donated the implants to make this trip possible and we are grateful for their continued dedication to our cause.

We have traveled to Guatemala, Ecuador,  cared for a minster from Africa, and now have traveled to Medellin Colombia to help those less fortunate than ourselves.  As with every medical mission we have taken on, 100% of your donations go directly to the mission itself. We have no overhead and the mission is all volunteer. We have nurses, doctors and physical therapist that all donate their time and expertise to help those who are in need.

Please consider us as one of your organizations to contribute/donate to now or in the near future, our patients will be so grateful for your support and we will send you the appropriate tax receipt for your necessary records. Thank you for visiting our site.
