In Yemen, our team met with Malak, a girl born in 2011 without limbs and with several health problems. We decided to enrol her in a private specialised school so that she could receive an appropriate education. She also received her first artificial hand in March 2019!
That is how we decided to launch the ”Prosthetics of Hope” project in December 2019. The aim is to support other Yemeni disabled people (children or adults) who do not have the chance to receive appropriate care (medical treatments, wheelchair or artificial limbs) due to war, poverty and lack of medical resources.
Thanks to the Dr. Sharah, we selected 12 patients who were able to benefited from the project.
At the beginning of 2021, we distributed 10 wheelchairs to 10 disabled children to make their life and that of their parents a little easier.
