: Yes, there are lots of them but they each have their own criteria as to who they help and what, exactly, they fund. In the UK, www.limbless-association.org
would be my first port of call. I'm not sure about different countries but the manufacturers or their suppliers are often able to give advice on potential sources of funding. Eg., www.touchbionics.com
, who created the world's first electrically-powered shoulder and are now leading the way with iDigits and the iLimb Ultra, offer help on navigating the maze of insurance. And both they and their UK and US clinical teams can do the same. Plus, there are a number of NGOs which help people who've lost limbs due to landmines. But a search for "Artificial Limb Charities" should return results for your part of the world.
A boy (young man, really) in the US called Wyzhir Johnson founded a charity called Wyzhir's Dream Fund, after being fitted with an iLimb, for US residents aged under 22, which is administered here: www.johnquintonfoundation.org/Community%20Outreach.htm
