Hands for Africa has been sadly moved by the devastation, death and amputations in Haiti caused by the 7.0 Magnitude earthquake. When Hands for Africa heard about the hundreds of daily amputations in Haiti, “an amputate or die” choice as a result of earthquake, some victims with rusty hacksaws and vodka as no other instruments or medicine was readily available; we decided to step in and make a difference with these new wave of amputees. Knowing that we specialize with working and helping amputees in Africa and being very cognizant of the immediate urgent needs of the Haitian Amputees, we did not hesitate for a second in assisting where we could.

Hands for Africa is a non-profit organization working to restore lost hope to those devastated by the civil war in Sierra Leone. We support amputee victims by developing and implementing self-reliance programs and providing the necessary aid for the advancement of these programs.
