Given the state of the local healthcare infrastructure, Stand Tall is currently one of the few organizations in Tanzania that can help patients afflicted with severe spinal problems and deformities. As a result, this is Stand Tall’s most ambitious and comprehensive program.
We have partnered with FOCOS Orthopaedic Hospital in Ghana. Stand Tall identifies patients with complex spinal disorders, funds initial treatments, x-rays, pre-surgical labs, medications and other needed services. We hire Swahili speaking caregivers and fly both caregiver and patient to Ghana where they receive their life-saving surgery and post-operative recovery.
