Crutches 4 Africa

David Talbot and his wife Candice started this program over a decade ago. David first saw the need while on a trip to Africa and witnessed people using tree branches for crutches. The program has grown to include Rotary Clubs from Maine to the West Coast and states from Canada to the Gulf Coast. Today it is no longer just crutches as canes, walkers, rollators and even hospital beds are shipped via containers to Africa. During one hurricane season a shipment being prepared for Africa was quickly diverted to the Caribbean to assist in disaster relief.
