Today’s presentation will be about Rotary and Inner Wheel Connections

The National Children’s Myoelectric Limb Bank was launched with the slogan “Give a Child a Hand”, in 1997 to address this need. Initially the Foundation partnered with the Lucille Salter Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford University, and the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.


Since 2002, the renamed Myoelectric Limb Project now partners exclusively with Hanger Clinics in the United States.


All Inner Wheel Clubs in the USA provide upper body Limbs to children 18 and younger.
