I lost my legs when I was electrocuted but prosthetic legs have meant that I'm able to walk again and, with the love and support of my family, I am looking forward to getting back to work.

Globally, millions of individuals face life with limb differences, with a significant number residing in sub-Saharan Africa.

The challenges people encounter not only involve personal mobility and independence but also extend to broader societal participation and employment opportunities.

Building on our legacy of transforming lives, we work tirelessly across numerous communities to provide prosthetic limbs, holistic rehabilitation, and advocate for inclusivity and empowerment. Our efforts have not only restored independence to countless individuals but also fostered stronger, more supportive communities.

To sustain and expand our impactful work, we rely on the generous support of our partners.
