Legs4Africa is enabling amputees in Africa to live more independently

Legs4Africa is a charity that supports amputees. With intelligent recycling we reduce waste and maximise the lives of African amputees. We believe that isolation and exclusion due to disability and geographic location is unacceptable. We work to provide people with the means to reach their full potential and quash the stigma that disability can invoke.

The way we do things

Legs4Africa have established a system that works; adapting donated equipment for amputees in developing African countries.

Scaling it up

Now it is time to extend our reach across the African continent. Your support will enable us to help more amputees back to their feet
