Help Children & Youth with Disabilities to WalkPlease use the tabs in the menu bar on the left to navigate the options for helping StandProud. We offer information and advice about how you can make donations, organise fundraising events, get sponsored yourself, support a fundraiser in their sponsored event, sponsor a child's medical assistance or education, raise money with every online purchase you make and how StandProud could benefit from volunteered time and skills.
What Your Contribution Can AchieveStandProud works to ensure that children with disabilities in the DRC have access to essential services and treatment that can increase their mobility and dignity.
The provision of orthopedic equipment and services is relatively inexpensive, allowing financial support to have a significant impact. For example, £60 can cover the cost of one half-length leg brace or £150 can cover the cost of one full-length leg brace. For a child who has not been able to stand or walk for many years and moves around only by crawling on all fours, £1300 would cover the surgery, bracing, and rehabilitation needed for them to gain mobility.
