Thanks to a donation from Switzerland, we were able to purchase equipment for the local production of orthotic and prosthetic devices. Patients after amputation of part of a limb are in need of an artificial joint or limb.
This is not yet available in Southern Tanzania and in Dar Es Salaam these devices are very expensive.
Currently we are installing a workshop for the production of these items.
We have employed an orthotist and prosthetist who is able to produce and adjust such devices individually. Already there is a long list of patients who need medical aids like that.
Donations for this project are highly appreciated.
