Project: Rural Rehabilitation Clinic-hands Across Africa
Partner: Hands Across Africa
This project was started to by Australian Sister Ann Stevens to assist the hundreds of people in the region affected by Sierra Leone’s violent civil war. The Clinic creates adaptive devices from local materials to allow people who have lost limbs or been severely injured in the war to acquire trades and skills needed for survival. In partnership with Hands Across Africa, Change for Children is supporting the growth of the current community rehabilitation initiative into a larger rural rehabilitation clinic.
