Fundraising for 500miles
500 miles supports the development and delivery of prosthetic and orthotic services in Malawi, Zambia and, hopefully soon, Zanzibar. They help people with impaired mobility of all kinds to get moving, as well and as independently as possible, by helping them to access prostheses and orthoses.
Prostheses are devices which replace missing body parts, whilst orthoses are devices, like splints, which support body parts which are weak or don’t function properly.
In Malawi, Zambia and Zanzibar, when people are born with deformities, lose their limbs or the use of their limbs due to accident, disease or poverty, many of them also lose their livelihoods, homes or families – and the most vulnerable even die. They're working to give them back their lives by making prosthetic and orthotic devices as accessible and as affordable as they can, not just today but on a long term and sustainable basis.
This charity is close to our hearts as one of our close friends passed away a couple of years ago from cancer (he was also an amputee) and his wish was for all his friends and family to raise money for 500 miles as they greatly helped him in his difficult situation
