Prosthetic Leg Donation

The ability to walk is one of the greatest gifts you can give

Legs4Africa’s primary objective is to get amputees from low income African countries walking and, for this, we need your help.

Legs4Africa relies on the generosity of people like you. One of the key elements that enables us to continue our work are donations of prosthetic legs. Your kind donation can provide the opportunity to amputees living in some of the poorest countries in the world to live more independent and fulfilling lives.

You don’t have to throw old prosthetic legs away

Legs4Africa provides an effective alternative to the wasteful disposal of prosthetic legs. Through prosthetic leg donations, and our recycling program, we are improving the lives of amputees in Sub-Saharan Africa.  

How we get your prosthetic leg donations

Donated prosthetic legs are either delivered by post by private donors or collected, on mass, from facilities on our nationwide collection runs.

Where your prosthetic leg donation is headed

Legs4Africa have sent prosthetic legs to The Gambia, Tanzania, Zambia, Senegal and Ghana. We have also assisted fellow charities with humanitarian appeals for the Syrian crisis.

Your prosthetic leg donation can change a life

Maggie Palmer and her husband have supported many young people in The Gambia over the years through ActionAid. After Maggie’s brother, John Nightingale, a former sailor, passed away last year, Maggie discovered another way to assist people in the region.

John’s prosthetic left leg is now providing mobility for Mariama Kieta who had her leg amputated after the unsuccessful treatment of a sore on her foot. After her amputation Mariama heard about Legs4Africa’s work to rehabilitate amputees and was matched with John’s prosthetic leg. She is now living happily and taking each day as it comes with her newly found independence.

How you can make a prosthetic leg donation

If you wish to make a prosthetic leg donation for yourself or on behalf of a loved one, please get in touch. We make sure that legs can live again to help provide the freedom and joy that independence and mobility can bring.

Help make a difference

Your prosthetic leg donation can make the difference between a life of isolation and frustration, and a life of independence and liberty.
