April 2018: So happy to receive this photo of Tumelo who has just received one of our L-N 4 hands through Bronwyn from the Mangaung University Community project clinic. He lost his hand after being attacked and is seen here learning how to use it.
April 2016. Our club was able to send some hands to the Rotary Club of Dundee who had found some potential recipients. This remains a wonderful project and results in really changing lives.
At last! We have hands! Working together with the Rotary Club of Port Elizabeth, Greg Williams has managed to get a shipment of hands for our two clubs to share. It is the intention of the Rotary Club of Kenton on Sea to become a distribution hub. So….. wherever you are, we would make every effort to ‘Give a Hand’. This FUNCTIONAL prosthetic hand is absolutely free, it’s easy to put on and easy to use. Only one thing to be aware of in order to avoid disappointment – a recipient must have 10 – 12cm of the forearm, measured from the tip of the elbow, as the device needs this in order to be attached.
March 2015 – we have received a letter from Greg Williams with regard to taking over this project for the area and becoming a distribution hub. If you know of anyone who may benefit from receiving – FREE of charge – one of these hands please make contact using details supplied elsewhere on the website. It’s a life changing initiative.
LN-4 – Give Hope Give a Hand http://www.ln-4.org/ 2014 The Ellen Meadows Prosthetic Hand Foundation
We provide a light, durable, functional prosthetic hand to every person who wants one and can benefit from it, and do so at no charge.hey, click here to see the video , this is a little, recent video that demonstrates our mission better than words.
Our relationship with this amazing, life changing project also came about as a result of our presence at the Lisbon Conference. Ambassadors Karen Thompson and Greg Williams so impressed us that we invited them, through our District, to give a presentation at our District Conference aboard the MSC Opera in April 2014. They spent a few days with us prior to the conference and trained some of our members to be able to ‘give hope, give a hand’. A hand was given to a local farm worker who had lost a hand on an accident. What an amazing experience to give this man back most of the functions of the lost hand. A 2nd recipient was a young man with a birth defect who also now has so many more ways in which he can use his new hand. This programme is on-going and we hope to identify more recipients as the word spreads.
Sorry, nothing found.
