Thank you for enabling us an independent life again!
Mr Martin Moore
It was a pleasure to help Martin return to his independent lifestyle by providing him with a prothesis. More recently we are hearing that he is now enjoying running and tending to his garden, up a steep slope. Something not possible before!
Mrs Joan Connell
This lovely lady just wants to go fast! After one year her leg was ready for a new prosthesis which, as you can see in the video, she has taken too swiftly.
Mr Errol Giderie
A well known Baker from Grenville area, loosing his leg following complications from Diabetes.
Mrs Evelyn Williams
Evelyn Williams can dance now as you will see following her recent fitting of a replacement leg this past month, her old prosthesis no longer fitting comfortably, bearing in mind it was over 10 years old and the latest prosthesis available then.
Mrs Elrika Antoine
Mrs. Elrika Antoine of Black Bay became aware of Attach A Leg Grenada via the Grenada National Counsel of the Disabled. She was amputated due to complications from Diabetes late 2015, and her wish and ambition was to return to work and continue to support herself. Since her amputation she was confined to a wheelchair.
"Attach a leg has changed my life, I am happy to be able to support myself and to enjoy the freedom of movement again. I thought I would never walk again. Thank you ever so much!"
Thanks to Attach A Leg Grenada and our sponsors, Mrs. Antoine has now returned to her job at the laundry service for the Mount Gay Hospital, as well as resuming her normal daily activities, something she earlier could only dream of.
Mr Fabian Greenidge
Fabian's disability is a result of a hideous assault with a cutlass by a deranged neighbor. This crime made national headlines in Grenada and the perpetrator is serving a severe prison sentence.
Gylfi recalls meeting Fabian. "I was driving through the neighborhood of Marion and I see this person jumping down the road on one leg with incredible speed and determination. I stopped, called him over. We introduced ourselves and he told me his story. He had lost his right leg below the knee, his left arm below the elbow as well as the thumb of his right hand. I must say his honesty, spirit and enthusiasm were quite infectious and there was no question."
Gyllfi found a sponsor for him locally and made him a leg pretty much immediately. Fabian is married and the father of two children."I am very proud of his achievements.He took to the prosthesis immediately with ease and now walks about like the champion that he is. He is a dear friend and his success means a lot to us."
Mr Kelly Philip
Kelly came to Attach A leg Grenada badly limping on an old prosthetic leg, that had been made for him by the Chores team some eight or ten years ago.
This old leg was badly worn and ill fitting, giving Kelly considerable pain using it. He could not walk properly. Kelly is a young lad with a job and the results of our new leg for him were quite remarkable. His case is a wonderful success story. Watch the video!
Ms. Valetta James
Valetta is truly a great success story. Her spirit and confidence are an inspiration. She has now returned to her work at a child daycare center in Grand Anse.
Mr James Philbert
James had been waiting about 6-8 months after having his leg amputated to find the resource of Attach A Leg Grenada. Living in a home for the disabled at the north of the island in Sauteurs, he was eager to be home again in his house and reclaim his independence. With the generous support of Annie and Philip Clift of the Petit Anse Hotel, James is now back to living in his own house independently in the community.
Mr Trevor Allen
A beautiful afternoon in St. Paul.
Mr. Trevor "Mantis" Allen, the motorcycle mechanic, is an above knee amputee. His short and somewhat fleshy stump is a challenge for all of us. We took the best care we possibly could, making him a prosthetic leg, and documented his first efforts of walking it. Bear in mind, that this is a mere 10 minutes into a process, that will take several weeks of hard work to refine. I am very proud of my friend Mantis, says Gylfi, when watching the video.
Mr Selwyn Frederick
Six months has passed since Selwyn's amputation in October 2016, and as of Friday he now has two legs again. He was most happy that he was able to receive help from Attach A Leg Grenada and are very grateful to all sponsors and donors making Gylfis work possible.
