Legs4Africa

With intelligent recycling we reduce mobility waste and maximise the lives of African amputees. We believe that isolation and exclusion due to disability and geographic location is unacceptable. We work to provide people with the means to reach their full potential and quash the stigma that disability can invoke.

Founded 2014

  • Mission statement

    To improve the quality of lives of amputees in Africa by giving them the resources they so desperately need. The more legs we get; the more lives we change.

    The charitable objects Legs4Africa have adopted are:

    (a) the advancement of health and/or the relief of human suffering; and

    (b) the relief of those in need, by reason of ill-health and/or disability
    and/or financial hardship

    by the provision of prosthetic limbs and other like mobility equipment (which is collated
    in the United Kingdom and which would otherwise have to be disposed of as the same
    cannot be reused in the United Kingdom in accordance with European Union law) to
    individuals in need of prosthetic limbs in Africa who cannot afford, or otherwise do not
    have access to, such healthcare.

  • Aims
