Every day we get out of bed, put on our socks and shoes and go outside with full freedom of mobility to experience the world in all its beauty.
For 32 million amputees across the low-income and war-torn world, this freedom of mobility is not an option.
Amputees lose limbs to war, landmines, disease and road accidents, with very little options for rehabilitation and care. Prosthetic limbs are an expensive medical device and requires modifications and replacements every year.
Families of amputees live significantly below the poverty line and are unable to afford medical and rehabilitative care.
UPmovement exists so that these amputees have a chance at a better life. We work closely with NGOs and Giving Partners on the ground in target countries to fund the manufacture and delivery of wheelchairs and prosthetic limbs to individuals living with disability.
By donating to our end of year appeal, you're helping fund this social cause. Together, we can bring down the barriers to inclusion and give amputees a chance at a better life.
