Enablement centres across the UK often have prosthetic legs returned to them, or have old stock. Legs4Africa provide a solution to recycle these items that helps some of the World's poorest amputees.
If you work for an enablement centre it is easy to get your spare legs over to us.
We want to see all amputees in Africa back on their feet, regardless of their circumstancesTom Williams, Founder
So what's next
We kindly ask that any collected limbs and components are packaged up ready for courier collection.
All we need is the weight and dimensions of each parcel (maximum weight 32kg each). With this we would be able to send over the necessary postage labels and arrange a collection that works with you.
Step 1 - Prepare
Package the limbs in either a box or if that’s not feasible packing them into plastic limb sleeves (If you have multiple boxes or sleeves just enter that below).
Step 2 - Inform us
Once you have done this, fill out the form below with the dimensions and weight of each package.
Step 3 - Collect
We will prepare the postage labels, send them over to you and arrange a collection.
At this stage we recommend you put the kettle on and enjoy a cuppa, you and your organisation and doing something that is really amazing.
