The gift of leg braces to a disabled child provides a chance to participate
socially and in school.
Families of physically disabled children in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) can rarely afford the surgery, special medical equipment, and therapy needed to enable their children to walk. Often these children are left at home and ostracized by their community since they cannot walk, attend school, and contribute to society.
StandProud (SP) works to equip these children with leg braces and the finances needed to support primary education for disabled Congolese children. When a child attains maximum mobility, they have hope and dignity which comes from receiving the same educational opportunities as other children.
$33 One set of replacement leg braces for a child
$11 One set of replacement shoes for a child
