Mobility 4 Africa

Our mission is to provide mobility equipment, hospital & pharmaceutical supplies to people in need in all of Africa to improve the conditions of life, to eventually create sanctuary communities for Albinos, who are frequently victims of their society, and to divert reusable medical equipment from landfills.
Mobility & Health for Africa collects and ships used and surplus mobility equipment and hospital supplies to Africa and distributes assistive devices to those with physical challenges who need them regardless of their race, gender, tribe, age, or religion. Mobility enhances quality of life and health. We believe assistive devices should be provided to all who need them at no charge, to enable everyone to retain health and function independently, as long as possible. Including bed-side commodes for the elderly. Also, hospital supplies which are needed desperately.
Mobility & Health for Africa is an ecologically responsible organization. We collect and distribute used equipment to maximize their useful lifetimes and those of our North American Landfills. We currently distribute in West Africa, in an otherwise unserved area of Conakry, Guinea. Our first project is located there because it is totally neglected. This is a result of being a French and Portuguese speaking region. English speaking areas are better provided for and are in less dire need.
