Small charity, big ambitions
The union of our founding members came about after individual involvement in medical aid work in Ethiopia through a larger international charity. Wings of Heeling is currently a small UK based charity, although we have big aspirations to grow and develop in the future.
Medical aid & education
The main focus of the charity is providing medical aid and education to African countries. Medical education is one of our utmost priorities. This enables long term improvement rather than short term relief. We work closely with local health professionals in the areas we visit, helping them to develop their skills and the services they provide to local people.
A focus on women & pregnancy
Our founders have a particular interest in women & children’s health and much of our initial work will be done in this areas. We especially want to focus on improving the safety of pregnancy and childbirth for African women.
At present our work involves sending groups of healthcare professionals to Ethiopia. Whilst there, our teams focus on the teaching and training of local surgeons and doctors. We provide medical equipment and much needed. resources including medicines, most of which is donated.
The charity is reliant upon donations and money raised by our events. Being a small charity, we are able to ensure that every penny of donated money goes directly to those in need. Due to established connections much of our work is currently focused in Ethiopia.
