War, accidents and disease cause thousands of devastating amputations across the world each year. The World Health Organisation estimates that as many as 30 million people need prosthetic limbs, braces or other mobility support in Africa, Asia and Latin America combined, so they can walk and lead active lives.
Amputee children, with their lives ahead of them, are particularly disadvantaged and often desperately lack access to good quality medical assistance and education. Since our launch in 2011, Elizabeth’s Legacy of Hope has changed the lives of over 250 vulnerable child amputees. Our mission is to give them mobility, education, and the opportunity to fulfil their potential.
