Limbs For Life (LFL) is a community service project initiated by Bandar Utama Buddhist Society (BUBS) which offers artificial limbs to all Malaysian amputees from poor or under-privileged background for FREE regardless of race or religion.

LFL offers a gift of hope, self-dignity and freedom from bondage to amputees by helping them to overcome their challenges and giving them an opportunity for a second chance at life. Many of the amputees are able-bodied and mentally sound people who are rendered immobile, unproductive and their lives wasted away due to unfortunate circumstances.

With FREE prosthetic limbs, these amputees can now go on to live a full, independent and productive life. We believe that each life is precious, each human being is capable of living up to his or her potential and be a contributing member of the community. Ultimately it is the society at large and the country in particular that will benefit when its people can live a meaningful and productive life.

This is a gift of hope and well-being not only to the amputees but also to their spouses, children and family members who are care-givers. LFL is targeting to give out 200 FREE prosthetic limbs in its first year of operations and will also offer to service, repair and maintain existing prostheses.

WHAT IS Limbs For Life ?

Limbs For Life (LFL) is a community service project initiated by Bandar Utama Buddhist Society (BUBS) which offers artificial limbs to all Malaysian amputees from poor or under-privileged background for FREE regardless of race or religion. For more information on LFL, please visit

WHY EMBARK ON Limbs For Life ?

There are approximately 400,000 amputees in Malaysia who lost their limbs due to amputation caused by congenital disorder, malignancy or gangrene, automobile or industrial accidents and diseases like diabetes, leprosy, cancer or vascular incidents. Currently, the cost of one prosthetic limb can range from RM8,000 to RM15,000 and takes approximately 14 days to produce. Once fitted, these prosthetic limbs will also need to be serviced and maintained. Due to wear and tear, all prosthetic limbs have to be replaced every 5 - 6 years or more. These costs are beyond the means of many amputees who come from poor or under-privileged families. 

BUBS in cooperation with The Prostheses Foundation of HRH The Princess Mother from Thailand (Prostheses Foundation) set up LFL Prostheses Centre to produce the cost effective prosthetic limbs developed by Associate Professor Dr Therdchai Jivacate (Founder and Secretary General of the Prostheses Foundation). The estimated unit cost of such prosthetic limbs will range from RM3,000 to RM5,000 with a turnaround time of 2 days once the amputees are confirmed suitable by a doctor for the fitting of a prosthetic limb. 

LFL Prostheses Centre is located on the lower ground floor of BUBS premise at No. 3 Jalan BU 3/1, Bandar Utama, 47800 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

In May 2013 BUBS signed an MOU and MOA with the The Prostheses Foundation which governs the transfer of technology and know-how of making prosthetic limbs as well as the supply of machineries, equipment, tools, prosthetic parts and materials from the Prostheses Foundation to LFL Prostheses Centre. For more information on the Prostheses Foundation of HRH The Princess Mother, please visit their website www.prosthesesfoundation.or.th

With the signing of the agreement, work on the LFL Prostheses Centre began and in October 2013, the first prosthetic limb by LFL was fitted. 

Besides the sharing of expertise from The Prostheses Foundation, LFL is also supported by a team of dedicated volunteer doctors from the University of Malaya Medical Centre and other hospitals in Klang Valley. Thus, in terms of technical know-how and support, LFL is confident of providing sustainable and comprehensive support to amputees from poor or under-privileged background in Malaysia. 

WHAT WILL Limbs For Life ACHIEVE?

LFL offers a gift of hope, self-dignity and freedom from bondage to amputees by helping them to overcome their challenges and giving them an opportunity for a second chance at life. Many of the amputees are able-bodied and mentally sound people who are rendered immobile, unproductive and their lives wasted away due to unfortunate circumstances.

With FREE prosthetic limbs, these amputees can now go on to live a full, independent and productive life. We believe that each life is precious, each human being is capable of living up to his or her potential and be a contributing member of the community. Ultimately it is the society at large and the country in particular that will benefit when its people can live a meaningful and productive life. 

This is a gift of hope and well-being not only to the amputees but also to their spouses, children and family members who are care-givers. 

LFL is targeting to give out 200 FREE prosthetic limbs in its first year of operations and will also offer to service, repair and maintain existing prostheses. 

In addition to giving FREE prosthetic limbs to amputees from poor or under-privileged background, the LFL Prostheses Centre may offer suitable amputees work as technicians where there is opportunity in the future. In fact, two out of our three technicians, En Muhamad Shafie Wahab and En Paramasivam are amputees using prosthetic limbs from our Centre. 

How can you help Limbs For Life?

We are appealing to you to come join us to give amputees a second chance at life. Help them to overcome their challenges and be a contributing member of the community. 

Become a main sponsor for LFL through your company’s CSR programs. We would greatly appreciate your consideration of funding Limbs For Life by pledging a sum of money on a yearly basis so that we can continue to provide a sustainable and comprehensive support to amputees. 

Tax-exempt receipts will be given for all sponsorship towards LFL. 

We have the expertise and technical know-how from the Prostheses Foundation and we have a team of dedicated volunteers who are committed to this noble cause. What we need is continued funding for the operational cost of running LFL Prostheses Centre. 

Help us reach out to the less fortunate. 

Together, we can make a difference to their lives!

Limbs For Life 缘起何处 ?

马来西亚有大约 40 万名截肢者因先天疾病、恶性肿瘤或坏疽车祸工伤 、糖尿病麻风癌症 、糖尿病麻风癌症 、糖尿病麻风癌症 、糖尿病麻风癌症 、糖尿病麻风癌症 、糖尿病麻风癌症 或血管 相关 等疾病导致肢体被截除。目前,一件义费用介于 8000 至1万50 00 令吉,需时 令吉,需时 14 天制 成。一旦安装妥当, 义肢也需要维修护理此外由于义肢会 磨耗 ,因此 必须每 5至6年或 更 频换新义肢 。对于来自贫困或弱势家庭的许多截肢者,这些费用 实在 远超他们能力所及。
BUBS 与泰国 王太后 义肢基金会(简称)合作成立 LFL 义肢中心, 旨在 制造 由 Therdchai Jivacate 副教授 医生所 研制 的义肢 。此类义肢 的成本合算,估计每件 义肢 成本介于 3000 至5000 令吉;一旦医生确定截肢者适合安装义,只需 2天时间便可完成制造一件义肢 。

LFL 义肢中心设于 BUBS 在 No. 3 Jalan BU 3/1, Bandar Utama, 47800 Petaling Jaya, Selangor 的会所底楼。
2013 年5月, BUBS 与义肢 基金会签署谅解备忘录和协议,以管制与义肢 基金会签署谅解备忘录和协议,以管制与义肢 基金会签署谅解备忘录和协议,以管制与义肢 基金会签署谅解备忘录和协议,以管制与义肢 基金会签署谅解备忘录和协议,以管制与义肢 基金会签署谅解备忘录和协议,以管制与义肢 基金会签署谅解备忘录和协议,以管制与义肢 基金会签署谅解备忘录和协议,以管制与义肢 基金会签署谅解备忘录和协议,以管制与义肢 基金会签署谅解备忘录和协议,以管制与义肢 基金会签署谅解备忘录和协议,以管制的制造科技转让和 专门技术,以及义肢基金会为 LFL 义肢中心 供应的 机器、设备工具义肢零件和材料 。欲知有 关泰国王太后义肢基金会详情,请上网浏览 www.prosthesesfoundation.or.th 网站。

LFL 义肢中心在 签署协议后开始投入运作,终于2013 年10 月安装了 LFL 制造的首件义肢。
除了 获得 义肢基金会 分享 专门知识之外, LFL 也获得马来亚大学医药中心以及巴生 谷其它医院的 一组尽责义务医生提供支援 。因此, 在技术专长和辅助方面, LFL 有信心可以为马来西亚的贫困 有信心可以为马来西亚的贫困 有信心可以为马来西亚的贫困 有信心可以为马来西亚的贫困 有信心可以为马来西亚的贫困 或弱势截肢者提供可持续性和完善的 援助 。
