The Story

Crutches 4 Africa is dedicated to bringing new hope and opportunity to those left immobile by disease or by unfortunate circumstance on the African Continent. Men, women, and children forced to crawl on their hands and knees for basic necessities like water. Through generous donations we hope to send 1,000,000 life changing devices to Africa, and to date over 100,000 have been sent. It costs a mere $3 to send a pair of crutches and change a life. $20,000 needs to be raised in order to send the 40ft shipping container packed full with the tools to help thousands left otherwise helpless. The container will be accompanied by 5 student ambassadors devoted to distributing these devices to the hard to reach corners of Kenya. $10,000 will go to the plane tickets in order for these 5 student ambassadors to go and distribute the devices, while all the rest of the money will go directly to shipping the mobility devices.
