During the last eight years, the Syrian war had disastrous consequences for Syrians in general. These effects ranged from the psychological side to the loss of one or some limbs, in addition to spinal injuries.
In light of this reality, it was necessary to take a qualitative initiative and take bold steps in this area and as a response to this call the Syrian National Project for Artificial Limbs was established in February, 2013.
The Syrian National Project for Prosthetics is a non-profit humanitarian organization founded by a group of Syrian doctors and it is based in Turkey and North Syria.
The project was divided into two main parts:
Providing a complete rehabilitation process for amputations and those with neurological injuries, including prosthetic devices and physical therapy.
Rehabilitation of sufficient numbers of technicians to cover the large numbers of injured, whose number exceeded 86000 according to UNICEF.
