As we continue our journey of empowering individuals with limb differences across Africa, we have evolved from Legs4Africa to a new identity that embodies our mission and vision more holistically. We are now STAND.

STAND represents our commitment to providing high-quality prosthetic limbs and supporting rehabilitation services.

This change marks a significant milestone in our journey. Over the past decade, we have grown and learned so much from the incredible individuals and communities we support. Our new name reflects our dedication to inclusivity, innovation, and the relentless pursuit of making rehabilitation accessible and affordable for every amputee in sub-Saharan Africa.

We have seen individuals regain their independence, return to work, and contribute to their communities with confidence and pride. As we embrace this new chapter, our mission remains steadfast. We will continue to collaborate with local prosthetic teams, support on-the-ground organisations, and support communities to advocate for the rights and needs of people with limb differences. Our vision of a world where every amputee has the chance to live a fulfilling life is clearer than ever.

Thank you for standing with us. Your support, generosity, and belief in our cause have been the backbone of the impact we made so far.

About the author

Name: Tom Williams

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.

Let our docuseries bring you up to speed.
