Grace is 46 years old. She has had Diabetes from childhood.
She fell in her bathroom in 2016 and sustained injuries that refused to heal well because of the underlying history of Diabetes. Her leg was amputated later that year at Lagos University Teaching Hospital due to complications.
Grace is a church secretary with three children. She and her husband, a civil servant, cannot afford the cost of the prosthetic limb.
It has been a traumatic experience for Grace, who has to use crutches to move about in Lagos. The provision of a prosthetic limb will facilitate Grace’s mobility and restore her autonomy.
