The average cost of supporting a Walk for Life Clinic is just $US 8000 a year.
This includes our clinic manager and assistant together with the plaster and braces.
It covers the initial treatment period of up to 8 weeks and the four years of monitoring, with brace changes and follow up visits.
The Lipshut family from Victoria Australia sponsors our clinic at Bhola.
Bhola is our most remote clinic and from Dhaka is reached by an 8 hour bus ride, and then a ferry or speedboat crossing to Bhola. Sometimes we are able to get a seat on the MAF seaplane which reduces travel time to 30 minutes!
