Since 2007,  Kraig Helberg served as a frequent prosthetist on trips with Standing With Hope, as well as a senior prosthetic adviser to this ministry. Bringing his more than twenty years of experience, Kraig’s mechanical skills and his lengthy knowledge of prosthetic development and materials has made him one of Standing With Hope’s most valuable technical instructors. When patients first saw his 6’7″ frame, their eyes widen.   When they connected with his gentle heart, they were forever endeared to this kind man who helped the lame walk.

Kraig was scheduled to return to Ghana on August 28, but was abruptly called home to be with the Savior he so faithfully served.  His absence will be keenly felt, and our hearts are broken at this loss. We ask that you remember in prayer the grieving family of this gentle giant who touched so many lives.

Here are a few shots of Kraig doing what he did best.
