Through generous support we are providing:
A SERVICE TO RECYCLE PROSTHETIC LIMBS
MATERIALS, TOOLS AND TRAINING
EMOTIONAL & PHYSICAL REHABILITATION
EQUALITY AND OPPORTUNITIES
We have calculated that it costs us £12 to get one prosthetic over to Africa. That’s just £1 per month, or 25p a week, or less than 4p a day. So, with that money you would usually spend on your weekly lunchtime Freddo or your monthly egg and cress sandwich you could give someone in Africa the ultimate leg-up
Legs4Africa began in The Gambia with the delivery of a single prosthetic leg in 2013. Since then we have continued to increase the ways in which it supports existing services whilst developing new solutions to help amputees.
Giving someone a prosthetic leg is like giving someone back their life again. It never gets boringGabu Jarjue (The Gambia's only prosthetist)
Amputee Support Charity in Africa
Enabling amputees to live their lives more independently
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 countries that are more fortunate we’ve learnt that there is a significant wastage of valuable material, components and resources that can make huge changes in less fortunate parts of the world. Legs4Africa are working to build reliable systems and infrastructures to provide equipment, rehabilitation and ongoing support for amputees.
We support the empowerment of amputees across Africa so that they may dispel current stigmas by proving that disability does not equate to inability.
