How to make a difference: Free 3D printed devices for earthquake victims
Monday, 20 March 2023, 19:30 (Istanbul; GMT +3) / 17:30 (Berlin, GMT +1) / 11:30 a.m. (New York, EST)
This lecture offers an opportunity to learn more about our work at Robotel Türkiye, which I am heading, in providing free 3D-printed prostheses for children who lack access to such devices. I will focus the impact it has had on the lives of those we serve. Our primary focus has been on providing mechanical hands, arms, and fingers to children, although we have also served adults upon request. However, recent events have led us to extend our services to include shoulder mechanisms, adult models, and orthotic prosthesis devices.
On 6 February 2023, at 04:17 TRT (01:17 UTC), a M7.8 earthquake struck southern and central Turkey and northern and western Syria. In this lecture, I will focus on our efforts in the earthquake region in Turkey, where we have received numerous requests for our services. I will discuss the impact of our work in the region and the urgent need for volunteers and financial support to continue our efforts. Our organization is currently facing a significant increase in demand, and we cannot continue our vital work without additional resources.
I will discuss the challenges and successes of our work, and the ways in which interested individuals can get involved and make a difference. With your support, we can continue to serve those in need and make a positive impact on their lives.
Therefore, I would like to call for financial support from individuals, organizations, and institutions who share our vision of improving the lives of those who lack access to prosthetic devices. Donate by following this link: https://fonzip.com/robotel/online. Your contributions will go a long way in helping us provide free prostheses to those who need them the most. Together, we can make a difference and ensure that everyone has access to the medical care they deserve.
