About St. Vincent & the Grenadines
How World Pediatric Project Helps
Hope is a rambunctious 4-year-old who World Pediatric Project met in the first week of her life when she was diagnosed with arthrogryposis and received her first surgery through our St. Vincent orthopedic surgery mission. This condition causes joint contractures, and, in Hope’s case, she has extreme stiffness in her wrists, elbows, knees and ankles. Her surgeries over the years by WPP’s annual team have given her family hope as they see her great progress. Her family was told by local physicians that Hope would be wheelchair bound, but with WPP’s help, she wowed the team this year with her new skill of standing, then took five steps!
