Led by the highly skilled Eunice Kombe, Harowin is a beacon of hope for those seeking affordable and quality prosthesis. Despite the challenges, the passion and resilience exhibited by Eunice and her team at Harowin are truly commendable.

When we visited Harowin, we were genuinely impressed by the dedication of Eunice and her team. The centre was well-organized, spacious, and exceptionally clean. The state-of-the-art machinery, functioning optimally, was indicative of the team’s commitment to providing excellent service to their patients.

Harowin’s dedication to its mission has never wavered. Eunice has suggested that relocating the center to a different town might offer better prospects. The spirit to continuously learn and adapt to provide the best service to their patients is what makes Harowin a valuable partner for us at Legs4Africa.

The primary area where Harowin needs support is not in the clinical domain but in business skills, marketing, local communications, and outreach. Although these areas fall outside of our core competencies at Legs4Africa, we firmly believe in Harowin’s potential and are committed to exploring ways we can assist them. After all, our partnership’s goal is to create a lasting positive impact on the lives of people in need of prosthetic and orthotic services.

At Legs4Africa, we celebrate our partners’ successes, share in their challenges, and support them in their journey to make a meaningful difference. Our collaboration with Harowin is no different. While there are hurdles to overcome, we believe that together, we can create a brighter future for individuals who need quality, affordable prosthetics.

Together, we can contribute to a world where quality healthcare, including prosthetics and orthotics, is accessible and affordable for all. We firmly believe that with partners like Harowin, this world is within our reach.

So here’s to Harowin, to Eunice and her team, and to a future where everyone, regardless of their location or circumstances, has access to the prosthetic and orthotic care they need.

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.
