UPLIFT HA NOI: "Arms upon arms"
Uplift is a social impact project run by Vulcan Augmetics as part of both our CSR and business operations. Uplift aims to put sponsored prosthetics onto lower income amputees, and work with business partners to place these amputees into public facing jobs, facilitated by specialist prosthetic attachments designed and provided by Vulcan.

What Vulcan want to achieve?
AMPUTEES ACROSS VIETNAM
The Coffee House became our partner in sponsoring jobs for the amputees. Amputees can easily get access to job opportunities of being waitresses. Also, this is a public-facing, highly-visible, and people-interacting job that will create a strong message.

Uplift aims to deliver prosthetic arms to 30 amputees, giving them a chance to earn a decent earning to support themselves and their families in 2019.
