There are over six million people who are disabled in Ethiopia, representing 7.6% of the total population. The underlying causes of physical disability are frequently misunderstood in Ethiopia, often thought of as a curse from God. As a result access to education is almost impossible and rejection by family and society is common. A lack of adequate healthcare also means that mobility aids are not widely available – those who are unable to walk unassisted have no choice but to crawl.

Cheshire Services has a widespread network of medical facilities that work at the heart of communities to treat orthopedic disabilities and help the community remove the social stigma associated with disability through social rehabilitation services. Cheshire Services is constantly expanding its operations to meet the ever demanding patient needs.
