Elizabeth’s Legacy of Hope (ELOH) supports vulnerable amputees across the world, through providing low-cost prosthetics, vital operations, educational, social and psychological assistance.
Since being founded in April 2011, we have helped provide new limbs for 100 amputee children in Sierra Leone, and have supported countless more by contributing to a Limb Centre in Tanzania. With your support, this number will significantly rise over the next year as our projects expand and we develop new partnerships elsewhere.
This short video explains our story and sets out our vision for the future:
War, violence, disaster and disease cause thousands of devastating amputations across the world each year – often permanently blighting the lives of those who have little or no support. World Health Organisation estimates indicate that as many as 30 million people require prosthetic limbs, braces or other such support in Africa, Asia and Latin America combined.
ELOH partners with experienced teams on the ground in some of the least developed countries to give limbless children the support they need to lead happy, healthy and active lives, just like their peers.
West Ham Fundraiser
On 25th May 2014, Elizabeth’s Legacy of Hope and our partner PLMR are taking over West Ham’s Upton Park stadium for the day. In order to raise money for our cause, we are organising a fantastic football tournament with the full stadium experience. As part of the day we are giving 12 teams of children, four teams of adults and two teams of amputee children the chance to play football in a Premier League stadium. Find more information here.
