Qatar Charity (QC) continues to provide its services through its qualitative project ‘The Center for Prosthetics and Physiotherapy’ in Azaz, northern Syria, in support of people who have lost limbs and people with special needs. Some 5870 people have benefited from its services so far.

The services of the center, which was launched last year, are part of Qatar Charity’s health and humanitarian interventions for Syrian internally displaced persons (IDPs).  This aims to lessen the suffering of beneficiaries, and enable them to lead their daily lives.

The project includes four main sections, which are the prosthetics, the physiotherapy, the psychological support, and the nursing sections.

Many beneficiaries of the center thanked Qatar’s benefactors, as well as Qatar Charity, for their continued support. Raziya Al-Aboud, who was unable to move without anyone’s support, due to paralysis, said that, after receiving treatment at the center, she can do her works without anyone’s help.

The center’s psychological support officer said that Raziya came to the center in a shattered psychological state, due to her paralysis. She added that Raziya, after receiving 27 physiotherapy sessions and 15 psychological support sessions, her condition improved.

Mr. Mesaef Attia, director of the center, said that it has become the center of attention and everyone looks at it as one of the vital points that provide important and necessary services for the injured, persons without limbs, and people with disabilities.
