"We collect used and surplus mobility devices, ship them to developing countries, and distribute them to people with physical challenges."

Crutches 4 Africa is an organization created by a man filming a documentary in Uganda. He saw several people struggling with issues that would benefit from mobile devices, and on returning home he saw several mobility devices being sold at garage sales, sitting in basements, and even being thrown away. Thus Crutches 4 Africa was created.

The creators personally distribute the crutches once per year. After saving up for a whole year they then travel to their destinations (certain destinations require different care and accommodations) and then deliver mobility devices to the people in need. “We distribute mobility devices to whoever needs them - regardless race, gender, tribe, age, or religion.”  In order to collect these crutches they host several drives, and collection gatherings. They also have several volunteers hosting drives as well, adding to their crutch surplus.

67,000 mobility devices have been collected, shipped, and distributed. 26 African countries have been recipients of their crutches, and also 10 other countries.

It only costs 3 dollars to send a pair of crutches. Support this incredible program, the cause is well worth it. For more information on this amazing organization check out their website.
