Inheritance and gifts

Momentum has over the years received individual gifts that have meant a lot and that have enabled us to do more for more amputees and relatives. We are very grateful for this.

On this page and through the brochure “Testamentary Gifts” we will tell how you who are considering giving a gift or testament to Momentum can do this in a safe way and be sure that your will is respected.

In Norway today there are approx. 5,000 people who are missing one or more body parts as a result of dysmeli (congenital), illness or accident. Many people live well with amputation, but it always feels brutal when it hits. Fortunately, it is possible to put it behind, but it is no secret that many have reduced quality of life due to their amputation, and are largely at the mercy of dedicated health professionals and committed family to have a full life.

“It is better to light a candle – than to curse the darkness.”

This is our motto and in Momentum we work for people with amputation to have a better life. We do this, among other things, by promoting innovative research and innovation in the orthopedic professional community in Norway, by actively working for better quality in all stages of the treatment chain, and not least through our peer work where we give an extended hand to those who need it.

Our goal is that no one in our target group should experience being left to themselves, but be greeted by a fellow human being who has felt it on their body. We would like to thank those who over the years have benefited Momentum and our work, and have made this booklet for you who may be considering bequeathing to Momentum now or in the future.
