Generous Donation from Dorset Orthopaedic

July 2, 2024

We are thrilled to announce a significant contribution from Dorset Orthopaedic, who have generously donated two Luton van loads of prosthetic workshop machines, equipment, tools, and prosthetic components from their Ringwood clinic. This incredible gesture comes as Dorset Orthopaedic moved workshops and decided it was time for an upgrade. All the donated machines have been tested and are in perfect working condition, ready to make a substantial difference in the lives of many.

At STAND, we believe in the power of community and collaboration. Our mission to support individuals with limb loss and limb difference across sub-Saharan Africa is bolstered by partnerships like these. The equipment from Dorset Orthopaedic will be distributed to our dedicated partners in the region, ensuring that more people can benefit from high-quality prosthetic care.

A massive shout out to Dorset Orthopaedic for their remarkable support. Donations like these are crucial to our work and enable us to provide essential resources to those who need them most. Thank you for standing with us and helping us make a difference.

Together, we can continue to transform lives and provide hope to those living with limb loss and limb difference in sub-Saharan Africa.

Stay tuned for updates on how these resources will be utilised to further our cause.

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.
