With the Syrian conflict in its seventh year, 30 000 people are injured each month and in need of basic medical care. Severely restricted access to medical care causes many people’s injuries to turn into lifelong disabilities, which otherwise would have been preventable.
There are an estimated 50,000 amputees inside Syria who are innocent victims of the indiscriminate bombing.
The One Nation Prosthetic Artificial Limbs Clinic in Syria (P.A.L.S) offers hope for a meaningful 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.
Our patients can expect to receive a lightweight, strong prosthetic limbs with highly flexible joints, in line with the highest international standards.
With One Nations new Prosthetic center and your support, we can offer hope to these patients again.
On average, each patient is costing us around £1,000 to provide a high standard Prosthetic limb. Make that difference today and help change lives.
