We are a nonprofit organization based in Chapel Hill, NC that specializes in providing 3D printed prosthetic hands free of charge for children in need. Our efforts are made possible by donations and the countless hours our volunteers generously contribute to assemble these devices.
We have received donated prosthetic pieces printed by companies like Lenovo and third party engineers not associated with our corporation. All of this would not be possible without the generous donations that enable us to continue our efforts.

Volunteer students at UNC Chapel Hill have dedicated countless hours of their time building prostheses for children who have reached out to the organization, utilizing the resources available to them in the Biomedical Engineering Labs.
Our corporation has received approval from the IRS for tax-exempt status under § 501(c)(3) of the Treasury Code. All donations made on or after March 13, 2015 will be tax deductible to the fullest extent permitted under § 501(c)(3).
Our story began with 7-year-old Holden Mora from Chapel Hill, who was born with symbrachydactyly, a condition in which the hand stops growing early in amniotic development. Holden was the first child to receive a hand. Our success with Holden inspired us to look for more ways to help kids like Holden.
