In spite of polio, James’ Mobility Cart gets him around safely

From Africa Surgery:
James with Mobility Cart

James was crippled by polio as a child. He had worked hard his whole life as a blacksmith. Now, retired and with no wife or children, at age 58, James lives at a small shelter for the disabled, in Freetown. Africa Surgery and our partner organization Orthotic Rehabilitation and Medical Services gave James a Mobility Cart. This was one of 78 carts donated by Mobility Worldwide and shipped to Sierra Leone by Africa Surgery.
