!UPDATE! !UPDATE! !UPDATE! !UPDATE! !UPDATE!

For all of our supporters in Malaysia and Singapore who are having trouble donating here, there is a PayPal donation tab on our website www.giveahand.org.nz, this is moderated by all of us including EiChi.

Ei Chi, now 26 years old is a professional motion graphic designer. Ei Chi is born without a left hand, and for the last 26 years, she never imagined or even dreamed of having a prosthetic hand because the reality is, they are just too expensive and inaccessible.

Ei Chi was perfectly happy with her disability, she learnt how to overcome most of the daily challenges such as tying shoe laces, wearing a watch and even using a professional camera. It wasn't until earlier this year when she injured her right wrist. With only one hand, Ei Chi could not do a single thing for an entire week. It was then she realises the disadvantages of having only a hand.

It wasn't until 1 month ago, when Ei Chi came across Give A Hand, a non-profit organisation founded by David Drummond.

Give A Hand is a not for profit organization based in New Zealand, who take open-source designs for prosthetics and develop them into cutting edge high-tech and affordable limbs that we then donate to people in need.

This campaign is aimed at raising funds to cover the cost of final development and integration of the technology in our prosthetic arm named "BOB". We are looking forward to bring Ei Chi to New Zealand so we can outfit her with her new bionic hand.

For Ei Chi, this is like a dream come true. But we need your help and support. Ei Chi needs to raise $20,000.00 which is needed to fund her trip and the development of the bionic limb. Any additional fund raised will be donated to Give A Hand to help other people who are born without a hand. These bionic hands will be given out for free.

Help Ei Chi and the cause. Please support. Give a hand.
