Since 1998, IFAF has sponsored a medical team of surgeons and podiatric residents from Seattle to attend twice yearly, the Yucatán Crippled Children's Project in Merida, Yucatán, Mexico, along with surgeons and residents from the Barry University and South Miami Hospital in Florida. These volunteer doctors travel to the Yucatán and screen children with severe and disabling foot and leg disorders. Several children are then scheduled for reconstructive surgery at a local hospital. A Mexican orthopedic surgeon assists and helps to provide the postoperative care necessary in these cases. IFAF also raises money, which it then donates to Barry University for the purpose of funding additional supplies and equipment for this worthwhile program. Check out this video to find out more about this worthwhile program:
