Bob and Kit have founded an NGO legalized in the United States, called Independence Road. Independence Road has the goal of improving access to needed rehab services in developing countries. This is the work we have been doing over the past twelve years and now it’s official – we can receive and disburse grants and funds directly and provide official transparency. Having our own non-profit corporation allows us more possibilities of working with international organizations that require the 501c3 designation. Hundreds of people are traveling the road to independence thanks to the work of our team at Prótesis Imbabura and Fundación Jen Lee and our supporters from around the world. Here are photos from Ibarra Ecuador from over the years. Thank you Focus International, which has provided invaluable assistance up to this point by passing through funds over many years. We are having a grand event November 29 to celebrate the arrival of 15 basketball wheelchairs for our Ibarra team, Ruedas sin Fronteras (Wheels without Boundaries). In attendance will be a major donor, Madeline Delp, Miss Wheelchair USA 2018 and president of the Live Boundless Foundation. Independence Road can receive tax-deductible donations directly.

Some political changes were made, everything is open again, and we are going down to Ecuador at the end of November.
