In 2012, we gave scholarships for two nurses to travel and work in Cambodia. Thus far in 2013, we’ve doubled our travel scholarship donations and are now able to support wound programs in Cambodia, Peru, India, and two sites in Haiti.
Our first travel scholarship recipients documented their experiences changing wound care in Cambodia on a blog: Cathy and Mary's Cambodia Trip. Check out their stories and photos to see how we are supporting improving wound care globally.
Locally, we’ve helped to buy over 100 pairs of diabetic shoes. Our OUCH! Races have begun to bring this silent epidemic to the forefront and increase awareness of the needs of wound care. We’re getting people moving, - from Texas to Iowa to Washington, D.C. to Georgia and Illinois - we're spreading the word about this wound care crisis and enlisting support and partners.
