About 500 miles
500 miles aims to support the delivery of prosthetic and orthotic services and surgery which promotes mobility and function for amputees and other disabled people in Malawi and Zambia. Prostheses are devices which substitute for body parts which are missing and orthoses are devices, like splints, which support body parts which are present but which are weak or do not function properly. 500 miles helps people to access and afford prosthetic, orthotic and surgical services today - but, through training and education, it is also trying to develop the future capacity of these services in Malawi and Zambia.
