What we do:
We help people who cannot afford prosthesis at no cost to them. Through their new-found independence, amputees regain their ability to walk again, find work and a chance to be independent again.
Targets for 67give:
Used prosthetic components are not recycled as they cannot be reused due to medical waste laws in the US/EU countries but they can be reconditioned in continents without such laws before being paired with their new owners. It's the perfect recycling project!
We need to pay prosthetists and orthotists to design a frame, which is made of graphite or similar materials and provides structural support for the socket and the components before fitting.
R50,000 = 65 prosthetic legs and associated components
R70,000 = cost to pay prosthetist to fit the components
Total target: R120 000
