The charity that’s getting sub-Saharan Africa back on its feet

We recycle prosthetic legs that would otherwise end up in landfill and facilitate support groups so amputees in sub-Saharan Africa can live more independent, fulfilled lives.

Euan is a Legs4Africa hero. He was one of our first ever leg donors and has since donated a number of his legs to Wudeh in The Gambia.

What is Legs4Africa doing?

Enabling amputees to live more independent lives

Legs4Africa is committed to improving the mobility and independence of amputees in sub-Saharan Africa through provision of rehabilitation services and access to prosthetic legs.

In the UK and other European countries prosthetics cannot be re-used or recycled. So, every year thousands of these expensive and life-changing pieces of equipment end up in landfill.

By encouraging individuals, hospitals and other establishments to donate prosthetics to us rather than throw them in a pit we enable them to have another lease of life in Africa by giving an amputee the ultimate leg-up.
