St. Giles Medical Rehabilitation Centre, Harare, Zimbabwe

St. Giles is a medical rehabilitation centre and the only one in Harare, Zimbabwe. It gives post stroke, major accident / brain injury patients the ability to regain their motor skills and use limbs that were rendered inactive. St. Giles also has two dormitories one for boys and one for girls and a primary school on site.

This collection of images were taken during a site visit  at St. Giles in September 2011. They are a snapshot of the needs that St. Giles has and they provide an idea of the help that you could give when you partner with us to make a difference in this crucial institution.
