About Legs4Africa

Legs4Africa work with amputees in the UK and mobility centres in Africa to help people live more independent, fulfilled and active lives despite their limb-loss.
They collect and recycle prosthetic limb components, sourced from UK hospitals and private donors, for adaption and fitting by trained technicians at partnering hospitals in Africa.

They collect prosthetic legs that would otherwise end up in landfill and give them a new lease of life in Africa. In the UK and across Europe prosthetic legs cannot be re-used or recycled. This means that every year thousands of legs end up in landfill. By working with NHS hospitals, funeral directors and individuals across the UK they can stop this from happening.

They collect legs that are no longer needed here and send them over to Africa – giving amputees over there the chance to walk again. At the moment, they are expanding the recycling of prosthetic legs to Canada, Australia, and Europe.

They are now working with around 20 NHS hospitals in the UK and they regularly receive leg shaped packages in the post. They estimate that around 5,000 prosthetic legs end up in the bin every year. They will not stop until they have them all.

Legs4Africa Mission

Legs4Africa’s mission is to help amputees live independently, through the provision of prosthetic legs along with physical and emotional rehabilitation.
