Dedication and Determination: The Inspiring Story of Mulago Orthopedic Workshop

June 14, 2023

Tucked in the heart of Kampala, Uganda, the Mulago Orthopedic Workshop stands as a beacon of hope and resilience for many in need of prosthetic services. As an integral partner of ours, we recently visited this bustling hub of activity and were profoundly inspired by the dedication and professionalism we witnessed.

Under the able leadership of James Kisambira, the clinic provides essential services, not just for Kampala but for the wider region of Uganda. From well-organized, clean workshop areas to the highly trained staff, the clinic personifies a deep commitment to quality and service. The most impactful element, however, is their patient-centric approach. James and his team genuinely care for their patients’ wellbeing, going above and beyond to ensure those even outside Kampala are not forgotten.

Our visit concluded with renewed respect and admiration for James and his team. Despite the hurdles, the spirit of unwavering dedication and commitment to improving lives, one prosthetic at a time, truly stood out. The Mulago Orthopedic Workshop showcases how dedication, collaboration, and commitment to growth can make a substantial difference in prosthetic care.

We are proud to be working with Mulago Orthopedic Workshop and look forward to continually learning from and supporting each other. Their story is a shining example of what we can achieve when we come together to bring about change.

My passion? Ensuring no prosthetic leg goes unused. I’m dedicated to collecting, refurbishing, and sending these vital pieces of technology to our partners in Africa, where they make a world of difference. When I’m not immersed in this mission at STAND, I’m often found outdoors, embracing nature. I love long walks in any season, camping under the stars, and enjoying the serenity of the great outdoors. My evenings often involve a unique hobby – maintaining and repairing old pinball machines. This blend of precision and nostalgia keeps me engaged and always learning. This fusion of dedication to my work and my love for nature and tinkering drives me every day, both at STAND and beyond.
