Orthotics Program

Province: Ontario

Community: Eabametoong First Nation

Date: 2019 – 2020

Health For Fort Hope brought volunteers together to help serve the community of Fort Hope with specialist health services, including foot care and orthotics. This program consisted of three trips that helped more than 50 community members with foot and wound care and orthotics, including back bracing, specialized shoes and insoles, foot and leg orthotics, and much more. In 2024, True North Aid hopes to expand this program to other communities in Ontario by working alongside staff at nursing stations specializing in foot and wound care.
