Project: Projects in Partnership with Hands Across Africa
Partners: Moyamba Rehabilitation Clinic (St. Joseph’s Clinic)
Canadian Project Partner: Hands Across Africa www.handsacrossafrica.org
Working with CFCA, Hand Across Africa has been able to support this clinic, which provides much-needed rehabilitation therapy, prosthesis and counseling to people injured in the war in Sierra Leone, in an area where there are few other medical services. In 2009/10 the clinic was able to treat over 900 patients and fit them for prosthetic limbs.
Our Partners: The Hands Across Africa Society was started by colleagues at the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital in Edmonton, Canada, who wanted to improve the lives of others. It has evolved into a group of volunteers who focus on fundraising for projects in Tanzania and Sierra Leone.
HAA also supports the Amani Children’s House in Tanzania – click here for more on that project..
