Irede foundation on Saturday 13th April, 2019 in Abuja organized a walk known as OUT ON A LIMB. OUT ON A LIMB is programme put together by Irede foundation, a Non Govermental Organization that focused on giving hope, joy and life back to children who lost their limb by ensuring that they acquire prosthesis to help them realize their potentials.
The programme is an awareness walk to bring the attention of the public to the plights of the children living with limb loss and urgent need to properly care for them. It does take place in 30 locations to promote inclusiveness of these children and solicit for lead advocates who can facilitate prosthesis for these children.
This year’s theme is WALK A MILE, GIVE A LIMB (Ensuring Inclusiveness). The message is to join 1000 lead advocates to facilitate at least 50 limbs for these children without limbs. Senator Dino Melaye joined the lead advocates in this year’s walk as he was seen at Unity Foundation (take off point of the walk) wearing OUT ON A LIMB T. Shirt.
Irede foundation over years through this massive mobilization of support from the public has reach out to 186 communities, empowered about 66 families and has provided over 60 prosthesis.
