I am a Physiotherapist from South Africa and worked with people in extreme poverty, including at Baragwanath Hospital in Soweto, South Africa's biggest township. I was able to help people who had very little and often not the means to get even the simplest of mobility equipment. I have since lived and worked in England, New Zealand and Australia and in each of these first world countries mobility aids are given out single-patient-use, something that truly shocked me when I first left South Africa. Almost every day I came into contact with someone wanting to give these aids back to be re-used. Each time I said "we can't take these back", it made me think of the dire need for these aids in my home continent of Africa and how life changing each aid would be for someone back home. For many years I have said to myself that I need to get involved and after a bit of research I found C4A - exactly the opportunity I had been looking for!! So after many years of thinking about it, I am finally doing it and have become a collector for C4A.
