South Africa Lower Limb Foundation started this petition to President Cyril Ramophosa (President) and

Access to affordable foot care and foot screening will minimise amputations and salvage limbs.

Training of foot health practitioners is key to achieve this goal.

Amputations is a National disaster.

Maiming and mutilating an already disadvantaged sector of the community.

Amputations shortens the life span of the victims.

Amputations affects the earning power and the potential of the victims.

Amputations should only occur to save lives not be a convenient way of treating a medical situation that can be solved with conservative medical care.

Amputations ruin lives and families.

The support post amputations are sparse.

We need an Amputation Register so that we can journey and support the victims. We need to research their immediate and long-term needs and put the necessary in place to improve their lives.

Please sign so that we can get government to recognise the Foot Health Practitioner as an emerging profession.
