Your donations in action

Students have been travelling to Chennai in India to provide prosthetic and orthotic support in a country with a desperate lack of provision.

Zoe Ralston, a fifth year Prosthetics & Orthotics student, spoke about the experience and the help of the alumni fund:

The project makes a real difference to people’s lives and gives them back their independence and the ability to work. None of this could have happened without the support of the Alumni Fund."
