One of the most debilitating consequences of the brutal conflict in Syria is the massive number of individuals who have lost one or more limbs as a result of the violence. There are an estimated 50,000 amputees inside Syria, many are women and children – innocent victims of indiscriminate violence.
The National Syrian Project for Prosthetic Limbs offers new hope for a meaningful and productive life for those who have lost limbs. By returning these individuals to a life of ability, independence and productivity, the whole family that they support is often lifted out of poverty and dependence.
Adult patients normally go through 3 limbs during the fitting process – the first two are intermediate limbs which the patient wears during their physiotherapy. In most cases, the third prosthetic limb is the definitive one. Children often need a new limb every six months, until their growth is complete. Our patients can expect to receive a lightweight, strong prosthetic limbs with highly flexible joints, in line with the highest international standards.
With your support, we aim to raise the necessary funds to ensure that we continue to meet the high demand for prosthetic limbs, and continue to provide a high quality full care package from pre-op to aftercare, all free of charge.
We provide healthcare, sponsor schools, support
orphans, provide water, food and tents, and more.
