DISASTER RELIEF: Crutches 4 Africa provides mobility devices to people who are recovering from natural disasters such as hurricanes, floods, and fires. Use the contact form to request mobility devices or for more information.
Our Mission: collecting, shipping, and distributing mobility devices.
We collect used and surplus mobility devices, ship them to developing countries, and distribute them--free--to people with physical challenges regardless of their race, gender, tribe, age, or religion.
While producing a documentary film in Uganda, I saw people who had survived the disease of polio. Often they are rejected in their communities. I'm a polio survivor myself. Back in the United States, I realized that many people have a lightly-used and no-longer-needed mobility device from a twisted ankle, ski accident, or operation. I saw crutches at garage sales, in dumpsters, and unfortunately in roll-off containers headed to landfills. I knew that I had to do something; this was the genesis of Crutches 4 Africa.
It takes just $3 for us to ship one pair of donated crutches to Africa.
