As a result of the war in Syria, millions of people have fled the country or are internally displaced. Of the millions internally displaced, over 30,000 Syrians have lost limbs due to airstrikes, shelling or mines and illnesses. Muslim Aid is supporting a prosthetics clinic in southern Turkey and one inside Syia as well as a factory in Syria which produces the prosthetic limbs within two hours of placing an order.
This appeal is to help raise money to assist with training, equipment, and facilities to provide prosthetic limbs to those who have lost an essential part of their mobility.
Often Children are the innocent victims of war that they have nothing to do with. Imagine what a lost limb due to conflict does to a child and their family. With this project we aim to allow them to regain their livelihoods.
I am personally setting a target of £10k for fundraising - and I will be putting my own money into this effort - I hope this message will encourage you to do the same!
