Components for a Cause (C4C)
Components for a cause is a US program that recycles new or gently-used prosthetic components to be used in our permanent clinical operations in Guatemala and Ecuador to treat patients.
Following our organizational core values, "Human dignity, Empowerment, Community, and Sustainability," we kindly ask you to make a quick quality check on your components and check if they are suitable for another person to use.
You can request UPS shipping labels from ROMP through the link above! If you are feeling generous and want to cover shipping costs. You can ship any time through your preferred shipping method to our warehouse:
1474 S Acoma St
Denver, CO 80223

How C4C works:
Component Collection ->
Clinics or individuals collect and box components! You can ship directly to ROMP or request a label from us.
Warehouse Action ->
Our warehouse staff and volunteers work to inventory your donations and do a quality check on all items.
QR codes ->
If applicable, donations will be given a QR code with the donors information on it so that our staff in country can scan the items when they are used for a patient.
The majority of our components are donated by people like you! This allows us to keep our costs down while providing high-quality prosthetic technology to kids like William! (Donated knee from Becca Cook at Hanger Clinic!)
