Who are we?

Established in 2015, the Reaching 4 Korina Charity aims to support quadruple amputees and their families that have suffered due to sepsis. Our goals are to provide financial support to enhance health and wellbeing by acquiring equipment, prosthetics and medical aids whilst educating medical practitioners and the general public about Sepsis. We are reaching out to other quadruple amputees to help us share their story so we can help each other.


Our Mission

Meet Korina and our quad amputee friends.

What is Sepsis?

Sepsis, also referred to as blood poisoning or septicaemia, is a potentially life-threatening complication of an infection or injury through the bloodstream. If a patient becomes "septic," they will likely have low blood pressure leading to poor circulation and lack of blood perfusion of vital tissues and organs. This condition is termed "shock" and is sometimes referred to as septic shock when an infection is the cause of shock to distinguish it from shock due to blood loss or from other causes. This condition can develop either as a result of the body's own defense system or from toxic substances made by the infecting agent.
