Success Story: Adonabou

LegWorks Product: All-Terrain Knee

Adonabou is an above-knee amputee who lost his leg in a car accident when he was seventeen. He traveled from Burkina Faso to Ghana for two days by bus to be fit with a new leg, but that leg was unsuccessful in returning his mobility. It was very heavy and not high quality; it broke in half which forced Adonabou to use crutches to get around.

Through the LegWorks Mobility Project, and thanks to our partners at  We Help Two, Adonabou happily received an All-Terrain Knee in 2018. He likes that it is much lighter and doesn’t require as much energy to walk. He hopes to share his experience with other amputees in Ghana to help them walk as well as he can now.
