Shorouq and Mariam are both in their early twenties, young ladies in the Gaza Strip who are in our amputee program. Part of that program is to help pair youth together to help support each other through the long journey of treatment, rehabilitation, and other daily challenges of living in Gaza as an amputee. Thanks to Sharouq’s support, Mariam will receive her first prosthetic limb at Hamad Hospital in Gaza City. We built our program to pair older youth to be role models and to support their peers undergoing treatment. Our goal is to build friendships and life-long bonds to help them in their healing process. Both young ladies are perfect examples of what we can do when we help each other get through hard times.
PCRF is the only NGO running a program to help all of the children with amputations in the Gaza Strip through the amputee project and is the leading nonprofit organization in the world, supporting humanitarian projects and programs on the ground in Palestine. For over 30 years, we have provided tens of thousands of children in the Middle East humanitarian aid through direct support based on their needs.
