Nigerian woman recycles prosthesis so amputee children walk again

NIGERIAN mother of two Crystal Chigbu wept for days after her daughter was born with a rare limb condition that doctors said needed an amputation. She was not so sure.

But as her daughter Beulah grew and started asking why she could not walk like her friends, the parents had to make the hard decision to amputate the girl’s leg and fit her with a prosthesis.

After hearing other parents talk about their experiences, Crystal started Irede Foundation, an organisation that recycles prosthesis and donate them to children in need in Nigeria.
