Gaza Amputee Project

In 2019, PCRF began a project to help support the care for children in Gaza suffering from congenital or traumatic limb amputations. Many children were suffering from gunshot or bombing injuries in Gaza, while others were born with defects that required amputations. To ensure that these kids would get the care they needed to be mobile again, PCRF brought them together as a community for treatment - in many cases sending them abroad for free care that they could not get at home - while also working with Hamid Rehabilitation Hospital in Gaza City to help them get care locally. In 2020, we began providing mental health treatment and support for these children, as well as supporting the training for the local staff in Hamid Hospital, and providing materials and equipment.
