About Stand - A smiling man with prosthetic legs, wearing a red sports jersey and gloves, uses parallel bars for support. He stands on sandy ground, with greenery and a building in the background, representing the vision of STAND.

You could give the gift of standing to someone like Robert.


We focus on prosthetic support and rehabilitation for those experiencing limb loss, tackling the challenges that hinder mobility and independence. To achieve this, we collaborate with national health services and a range of partners at local, national, and international levels to deliver prosthetic limbs and provide rehabilitation services where they are most needed.

We also champion the rights of women, girls, and individuals with disabilities, working to enhance local healthcare services to ensure they are sustainable.

With years of dedicated service, we are proud to be pioneers in our field.
