Donation of 1,000 prosthetic legs headed to Africa

January 28, 2015

The U.K. charity Legs4Africa announced it is sending 1,000 prosthetic legs to mobility departments in West Africa. The shipment will leave England on Jan. 24 and arrive in Gambia in mid-February.

“It is an immensely personal and rewarding feeling to offer someone the independence that comes with a prosthetic leg, especially when [the prostheses] would just be scrapped in the United Kingdom,” Tom Williams, Legs4Africa founder, stated in a press release.
